    Piping individual fields from a multi-field question (address)

    Asked by MaidCrew on April 09, 2016 at 11:28 PM

    Hi... 

    When a question has multiple fields, (like the address) how can someone pipe the answer/content of just one field into a text element... like if I wanted render or pipe into a subsequent text field just the street address they provided?

    Thanks in advance,

    Shawn Mc.

    I'm not sure if it's correct, but to my understanding, you would like to pass the value of the street address field in an address field to a separate textbox field, is that correct?

    I would really like to apologize but can you help us by giving us more details or explanation as to what is that you would like to happen, please?

    We will wait for your response. Thank you.

    Okay, so my question has more to do with (example) name OR address field where there's multiple fields within the same "question" like a name or address.  With name, you have First Name & Last Name.

    How would I structure the { ??? } to only render the first name rather than both first & last name.

    ID: #first_82, #last_82
    Name: {name}

    Same for if I only want to render a street address rather than the entire address.

    Example:

    "Hello { ??? first name only, not first & last }, We've received your submission"

    Thanks
