    Changing Full Name Element to only one field

    Asked by iondjp on June 22, 2017 at 10:45 AM

    I have created a form where I used the Full Name Form Element. There is an input field on the form for each the First Name and the Last Name.

    The people that enter the data have requested that there be only one input field to enter the first and last name.

    Is there a way to do this easily? Is there a way to change the way the input field displays without replacing the actual database field? Of course, I could simply add a short text field and then go in and copy all of the name data to the new field and then delete the Full Name form element, but this would be a major pain in the butt.

    There is no concern whether the two portions of the name are stored in separate fields.

    Unfortunately there is no shortcut for your issue. You must delete the Full name field and add a new short text field. And obviously configure it how you like.
