    I am having problems with webform where entries are not case correct.  Instead of  first name JAMES or james, I want James (case correct).  Is there an app or something that Jotform can offer that autocorrects this before it gets to my CRM (VTiger).  VTiger has nothing to offer!

    Hello Bill - I'm afraid there's no way to force entries to have the first letter capitalized when passed to your CRM.

    It's worth mentioning that you can make them appear capitalized but these approaches only work on design-level, meaning they will only be displayed with the first letter capitalized. The actual data/info will still be saved as how it was typed in by your users.

    1. Using CSS - text-transform: capitalize;

    2. Or by using the CAPITALIZE prefix on email templates (for NOTIFICATION or AUTORESPONDER)

    I know these two will not meet your needs but I decided to discuss them for your reference.
