    Hi,


    I am trying use the first name previously entered in a form to use in other parts of the form such as:

    {name}, could we have your email

    However, I am only able to use the full name this way. Is there a way to extract just the first name from the name field?'

    For instance, I tried {name:first} but this did not work.


    Thank you.

    It seems that is is not possible to pass the value of the first name or last name to the label of another field. I am not exactly sure if this was previously possible. I tested and it is possible to separate the first and last name using {name:first} and {name:last} inside of the email alerts.

    I will report this issue to our developers and we will inform you via this thread once this issue is resolved.


    For now, I can only suggest you to use two Text Box fields for the first and last name instead of the Full Name field.

    Thank you for informing us. We've found a bug that affects our calculations (value copying) for subfields. This issue should be solved now.

    If you have further issues please let us know.
