    Unfortunately it is not possible to split the Full Name field into separate fields with the Zapier integration. A possible workaround would be to use two plain text-boxes and label them as First Name and Last Name fields. 

    If you need further assistance, please let us know.

    This is a real pain.  The user interface on the full name is really nice.  Is there a way to recreates the "full name" look and feel while having two separate fields?

    You can shrink the two fields together and use css to modify their appearance and make them similar to the Full Name field.

    1. Add a text field as the label.

    2. Shrink the two text-boxes.

    3. Add sub-labels "First" and "Last"

    4. Then inject the custom css below. 

    #id_392 {

        padding-right: 0px;

    }

    #id_393 {

        padding-left: 0px;

    }

    #input_393, #input_392 {

        width: 150px;

     

    }

    The field should now look like the screenshot below.

    You can check out this cloned form where I injected the css: https://form.jotform.com/60960823676969. You can also clone it to your account if you like.

    This is brilliant.  Thanks.  It goes a bit strange when the screen size changes though

    You can inject the additional code below to make the field responsive on mobile:

    @media only screen and (max-width: 500px){

    #id_394 {

        margin-top: 0px;

        margin-bottom: 0px;

        padding-top: 0px;

        padding-bottom: 0px;

    }

    #id_394 p{

        margin: 0px;

    }

    #id_392, #id_393 {

        padding-right: 0px;

        padding-top: 0px;

        padding-bottom: 0px;

        margin-top: 0px;

        width: 200px;

    }#id_392{width:190px}

    Here's the link to the form where I tested the css: https://form.jotform.com/60960823676969
