    Dear JotForm Team

    I would like to know, if it is possible to use a standard "name" field, using the first and family name and a title such as Mister. In a second step I would like to include the results of these fields in the auto reply. However, I just would like to take the title and the family name (Mr. Doe instead of Mr. John Doe). Is this possible or would I need to have three seperate fields (title, first name, family name) to accomplish this task?

    Thanks a lot for your assistance

    Hi,

    Yes that is possible, in your case, you can use the following to fetch the partial input in the full name field:

    Prefix: {name36:prefix}

    First name: {name36:first}

    Last name: {name36:last}

    So you can say:

    "Hi {name36:prefix} {name36:last}" = "Hi Mr. Doe"

     

    name36 is the field unique name, you can find it in your form field's properties. Here's how you can find it: https://www.jotform.com/help/146-How-to-find-field-IDs-and-names 

    Let us know if that helps.
