Good Morning!

I was wondering if there was a way to have only the first name of a CSA member show, instead of their first and last, when using the mailing feature, or when payment receipts are sent?
I know in the mail settings we use this command: %%user-name%% but, is there a way to do %%user-first-name%%?

Thanks!

    Hi Rebecca,

    Currently the variables listed are the ones you are able to use. However, we appreciate this suggestion and have added it to our list of developments for the future. We think it's a great idea and would make confirmation emails seem a little more personal. Stay tuned and feel free to continue to let us know how we can make our services work better for you.

    Best,
    -Lauren, Farmer Support

    Hi Rebecca,

    I just wanted to let you know that we've created the variable that you wanted. You can now use %%user-firstname%% to just show the first name of your users. And just so you know, emails are sent to users in your system, so if you have a membership with a few users attached to it, it will show the first name of each user, not just the primary user attached to the membership.

    Thanks again for your suggestion!

    Best,

    Hi there Rebecca,

    Sorry but at this time the %%user-firstname%% variable does not work on the payment request tool.There isn't a work around available at this time but I will let Mike know and we can add it to the development list.

    Thanks,
