    I want an autoresponder to include the first name of the person who submitted the form, but I want the first letter capitalized. Right now my form says {name:first}, how do I adjust it properly to add the CAPITALIZE feature?

    I figure it's not just {CAPITALIZE:name:first} but please let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi 4rreeaall,

    You can set all the first letters in uppercase by adding the word "CAPITALIZE:" right before the name of the field. Say, the original name of the field is {firstName}, make it {CAPITALIZE:firstName} to make all the first letter of the words in uppercase.

    In case you labeled the first name field with "First Name", the name of that field should be {firstName} just add CAPITALIZE: at the beginning, changing nothing else.

    See below:

    Walledgarden,

     

    Thanks for the quick reply. However, the label of this field is "Name" but it includes an area for both a First Name and Last Name. So if I were to simply put CAPITALIZE in front of the field name in the autoresponder (i.e. {CAPITALIZE:Name}), then it would send emails with the recipients first and last name.

     

    This is why my autoresponder currently says {name:first} at the beginning of the email; I only want it to input the recipient's first name. How do I get the autoresponder to only start an email with a recipient's first name, and also have it capitalized?

     

    I think the confusion above is that I do not have two separate fields for First Name and Last Name, but rather just one field titled Name that allows inputs for the first and last names.
