    Ie instead of NAME - FIRST LAST
    Then the second question is APPLICANT ONE - xxx

    Can I reference the name they input - *with some wildcards etc?

    Here is how you can do that:

    1) Check the field name of the Name field:

    2) And just add it at the beginning of the question where you want to have it, and put it in the curly brackets:

    Hey didnt work? I want to input the name field (ie first name) into the second question. 

    It just still says {NAME} in the brackets. I've even changed the label name to make sure and trialled it in the question. Still no luck.

    Thank you for your response. I tried building a sample form for the same layout and was able to replicate the problem. Let me escalate this to the developers for the issue to be addressed. We will keep you posted for updates.

    Thanks for your patience and we apologize for this inconvenience.
