Dynamic QR code - Name field

    Hello, is there a way to separate the first and last name in the Name field for the QR code? I'm able to do this when creating emails, etc but it doesn't seem to work with the QR code.

    For example I want it to record Doe John or Doe_John instead of John Doe.

    Hello @leeandrea1,

    Thank you for contacting Jotform Support.

    Unfortunately, the Dynamic QR Code widget does not have the ability to separate the First and Last names of a Name field. When the data from the Name field is generated in the QR code, it will read the value as one string. i.e. "FirstName LastName"

    If you want the name reversed, you may consider asking for the last name first and the first name second in your name field.

    OK, thanks for your reply! I ended up separating the Name field into 2 fields and used a hidden short text field with LastName_FirstName and it worked in the QR code.
