Note
$isoDayOfWeek cannot take a string as an argument.

A collection called birthdays contains the following documents:

{ "_id" : 1, "name" : "Betty", "birthday" : ISODate("1993-09-21T00:00:00Z") }
{ "_id" : 2, "name" : "Veronica", "birthday" : ISODate("1981-11-07T00:00:00Z") }

The following operation returns the weekday number for each birthday field.

db.dates.aggregate( [
{
$project: {
_id: 0,
name: "$name",
dayOfWeek: { $isoDayOfWeek: "$birthday" }
}
}
] )

The operation returns the following results:

{ "name" : "Betty", "dayOfWeek" : 2 }
{ "name" : "Veronica", "dayOfWeek" : 6 }
