    As requested I am starting a new thread as this feature is still not working for me.

    I can create the problem like this:

    Create a fresh form using the first template "Contact Form with Blue Envelope Theme"

    Add {name:first} to the notifier email Name: section

    Fill out the form with the name John Doe

    I get an email back with Name: J but I would expect it to be Name: John

    I originally found the method here: http://www.jotform.com/answers/227813-Separate-First-Name-and-Last-Name-on-Email-Notification

    Any ideas how to get this working?

    I checked your form and you are using a regular text-box field. For this to work you need to use a Full Name field instead:

    Then you need to find out your Full Name ID. You can see our guide how to find field's IDs.

    Then you append to the field ID the :first and :last. In this case is fullName9:



    You can test and clone the demo form.


    Let us know if we can assist you further.
