    Hi corkeran

    Thanks for asking. For your particular form, use the tag {fullName16:first} to output just the first name. Similarly, you would use {fullName16:last} for the last name. (The number in the tag varies according to the order in which the field would have been inserted during the form's creation.)

    If you need additional help with this or any other aspect of our product, please let us know. Our team is always willing to assist where we can.
