Get weekday name from a date - alternative

The following Google Apps Script code is an alternative to this blog post where we instead format our date in a way as to only extract the week-day name, saving us the effort of getting the week-day as a number and then looking this up in a 'switch'.

By making use of 'formatDate' and the pattern 'EEEE' within a few lines of code we have a workable week-day name that could be used in an if statement as discussed in the previous post.
