I have SharePoint 2013 Workflow that getting Today date to Workflow Variable and Check the Day, but when I try to return workflow variable as Long Date Designer is not allowing to choose and drop down is grayed out

enter image description here

Thank you in advanced


What’s the action you used to return workflow variable? Different action can only return certain type of Date value.

Per my test, I can get the Long Date type of data via Log to History action.
