The field on “Name” on Person record is a system field for capturing the “Full Name” of the record. There are two additional fields “First Name” and “Last Name”.
It would be great to make the “Name” field a formula field with “First Name””space”“Last Name”.
We had to build a custom field for this, call it “Full Name” and use that instead using the formula.
Oh! and it is still painful and didn’t solve the problem, because the person list in C360 does not allow me to remove the “Name” field!!
Simple ask but effective. If not by default - Admins should at least be able to choose how they want to configure this field.
SFDC has this logic built it. You always enter first and last name and it shows the full name automatically.
