Restrict "Date" field to Saturday only


I am looking to restrict the Date field in a form to only a Saturday, is this a function within Smartsheet?

    This function does not exist. I would suggest setting up a helper column. If users are selecting the date directly in the sheet, you could set the helper column with an IF formula to output a message if the date selected is not a Saturday along with some conditional formatting. If users are entering the date in a form, you would include some help text above the field, set up the helper column, then set an Update Request to automatically trigger when that helper column flags a non-Saturday date.
