Middle name field needed

  1. Many times a middle name is legally required. Would be nice to have a checkbox to in the canned Gravity Forms Name field to display First and Last OR First, Middle, Last

  2. We will definitely be adding a Name Format option to the Name field that displays First, Middle and Last Name. It won't be in the next release (which is primarily a bug fix/api hook release) but it is something we are going to be adding.

    Gravity Team...

    I have successfully added a middle initial box for my forms only when I use the extended name format, and all appears to be working correctly except when it sends the form across via email the field MiddleN, I created, is not showing up in the form results.

    Can you tell me what file builds the first + last names to begin with? I think its missing the MiddleN I created.

    I changed the common.php :
    - case "name" to include middlen
    - switch($field["nameFormat"]){ to include middlen only in extended name format
    I also changed it in another file to make sure it checks for required tag.

    Please help me out..what file am I missing.

    I figured it out.. I had placed all the right variables everywhere, but did not put in a new Name componant with the new variables. The DB had the old not the new.

    All is good.

  6. Just adding my request for a format that includes first, middle initial (at least) and last names.

  7. This is definitely needed as I would like to make Name unique for registration purposes and that is only remotely possible if middle names are permitted.
