    I have just integrated my form my MailChimp account.  The problem is that MC has different fields for First and Last name.  Currently my JF all have "Name" and when imported into MC the first and last names show up in the "First Name" field.  Therefore I have to manually adjust them.  :(

    How would you suggest I fix this on my JF?  I also don't want to lose previous data, as would happen if I delete the "Full Name" field on the form.

    Thanks!!!

    Hi,

    The "Full Name" field under Quick Tools is a special field that auto-matched the "First Name" & "Last Name" from the MC form so there should be no problem with that. However, upon checking your form, you seem to be using a standard textbox field with a label "Name" which is the reason why the first name and last name entered on the Name field ended up on the "First Name" field on your MC list. 

    I think the best way to fixed this is to delete both "First Name" & "Last Name" fields from your MC form and replace it with a single text field labelled "Name".

    Here's how to delete First and Last Name on your MC form.

    Add a Name field.

    You should be able to integrate it on MC Integration afterwards. Check this screenshot:

    Hope this helps!

    Would this delete data from my MC list?

    Actually, I "Hid" the old "Name" field, to avoid deleting existing info.  Removed it from a "Required Field," then dropped in the "Full Name" field, linked it to MC and viola!  Works perfectly :)

    JotForm rules!!!!

    That's another way. Glad you've found a workaround.

    Cheers!
