    In yourName field you just add ":first" for first name.

    so it would be..


    These are the specific tags stripped if you enable "Middle Name, Prefix, Suffix". Assuming fullName2 as the unique name of your Name field

    {fullName2} renders Dr. John Michael Doe Ph.d (the period after the prefix is automatically inserted)

    {fullName2:first} renders John

    {fullName2:middle} renders Michael

    {fullName2:last} renders Doe

    {fullName2:prefix}. {fullName2:last} renders Dr. Doe (in this case, the period and space must be manually added)

    {fullName2:prefix}. {fullName2:last} {fullName2:suffix} renders Dr. Doe Ph.D

    Hope that helps.
