    Can you send first name and last name as separate data fields to zapier?

    I am setting up a ZAP to redtail CRM and they will not populate the full name into separate fields?

    The FULL NAME field, along with the ADDRESS FIELD or any field in particular that has multiple fields are all treated as a single field.

    The only way around this is to:

    1. Either use 2 separate TEXTBOXES for the first and last name so they are treated as 2 separate fields

    2. Or use Zapier's Formatter, though I'm not sure if this feature will have what you need, it's worth exploring the Split Text option.
