Can you mark it as the solution please? it helps others find the answer to things.

It seems to be only displaying a users first initial

Did you set it up the exact way I showed in the screenshot? i.e. with the append function?

You don’t need to append, just put the first dynamic expression and then add the second dynamic expression without a space

wont let me

It does.

Don’t click ‘more’ after the expression, put the cursor just after the expression and wait until you see the blue insert dynamic data pop up, click on that and then build the expression

Ok, that worked. Thanks @equibodyapp and @paul29

I just need to figure out how to force them to be capital letters (some users don’t enter their name is capitals on sign up)

There is an uppercase operator
