Understand Name Field Properties

This page is applicable to all report types except pivot chart and pivot table.
The Name field in your report displays name values such as Customer Name, Employee Name, or Subscriber Name. This field has predefined properties that allow you to view the name in a format that suits your requirement. The report can display the full name or the first name of the person, include prefixes such as Mr. or Miss, and suffixes such as Ph. D., M. A., or M. D., based on the nature of your need and audience. All or some of these constituents form the name field. The values are displayed based on the predefined properties applicable to the field.

There are various dignitaries attending various gatherings in the event and you have a report that displays all their profile information. Considering the nature of requirement, your report's name field displays the full name of those dignitaries along with prefixes and suffixes. If a doctor is addressing a gathering and you have his details in the report, the name field will have:
  • Prefix - The title that is included before the name. In this case, Dr.
  • First name - The user's first name. For example, Tony.
