Hi Team,

Can someone please help me with a function which can covert the current date & Time (in EST) to the below expected date time format:

Expected Format: Friday, February 15, 2018 13:34:37 PM

I have tried to use the below but it did not produce the desired output.

var DateTime = qie.formatDate('yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss', qie.getSystemDate()); // Output: 2018-02-16 06:37:54"

I would really appreciate if someone can help me with this.

The code below will give you the expected format you were looking for. This will display the full day name, full month name as well as AM/PM. 

var dateTime = qie.formatDate('EEEE, MMMM d,yyyy HH:mm:ss aaa', qie.getSystemDate());
