    I'll try this however the MailChimp integration doesn't seem to work very well without a NAME field - let me have a look

    With MailChimp Integration, you should be able to see the default "First Name & Last Name" field from the MailChimp as Full Name in the integration wizard. Then you have to map it with the Full Name field from your Jotform form.

    The Full Name field from Jotform is already designed to populate values (both first name and last name) into MailChimp's default First Name and Last Name field.

    Example:

    They should end up like the following in your MailChimp list after submitting the form as an example.

    Dear Elton

    Yes I know that. However I need to be able to get the first name and last name out of the NAME field for integrating with Zapier at the same time and I am NOT able to do that - it is very frustrating!

    I made tests on my end with different widgets to separate the value of the name field and unfortunately, it's not possible to achieve this at the moment. My colleague (Elton) submitted your requirement as a feature request. We cannot guarantee that the feature will be implemented or cannot provide any time frame for implementation at the moment. However, once we have any information in this regard, you'll be posted on this thread: https://www.jotform.com/answers/1716886.
