    Why is the name on my application the name of the first reference instead of the person applying for the job?

    Asked by Access1309 on March 13, 2017 at 09:55 AM

    Whenever we receive a job application in our email, the name on the subject line is the name of the first reference for the applicant, not the applicant themselves.  Is there a way to fix this?

    I cloned your form to test it and the name entered in the first name field that appears in your form is what is used in the email subject:

    The field ID's match as far as I can tell.

    If this is still not the case with your form, let us know and we will be happy to have another look.
