Contact Name Split



  • More flexibility while you define your email templates. You can use the first name or last name or both and personalize your emails.
  • Simplified third party integrations. You will be able to pass two independent fields First name and Last Name instead of having to split the Full Name

Important to Consider:

    • Form Layouts: Added fields with First Name and Last Name already
    • Custom views: Used it in Search Criteria
    • Workflows: Used it in Filter Criteria
    • API / Third Party Integrations: Make necessary changes to include the First Name & Last Name fields
  • Changes required if you have already customized the following:
  • The Last name will be treated as a compulsory field in all transactions ( add, edit, import ) with the record.
