Hello Zapier community !

I get from Docusign field the info “First_Name Last_Name” and I would need to convert it into “Last_Name First Name”.

Does anyone know how to do this with Formatter ?

Thanks for the help you could give me.

Hi @Calairoy 

You can use Split Text formatter and use Space “ “ as the separator. Later in DocuSign action, just add the second match first and then first match in second position.

Hi @Calairoy 

Keep in mind parsing full names can be troublesome due to these reasons.

  1. Multiple first names
  2. Multiple last names
  3. Middle name included (+ multiple middle names)
  4. Name prefixes (e.g. Dr.)
  5. Name suffixes (e.g. Jr.)
