Collecting First & Last Name from attendees instead of Full Name

Many a times, organizers want to collect first and last names of their attendees separately instead of collecting their full name. DoAttend provides a simple mechanism to setup your event’s registration form to do this.

Under the Setup tab for your event, click on the Registration Form link. This page is where the behavior of the registration form is defined. In this page, the first field listed will be Name. Against the Name field, on the far right, you will see a link that says “Use First & Last Name” . Click on this link and voila! – your event’s registration form is now setup to collect First and Last names from attendees.

If you change your mind and want to switch back to collecting full name instead, then you can click on the “Use Full Name” link that you will see.

Bear in mind that you need to set this up before registrations for your event begins.
