New contact wizard drop down that comes up after you enter the contact

Is there away to alter the list of possibilities for how a name is to be listed

ie first name

last name

middle name etc. 

 

I am needing more options than is provided in the the defaults for this field as I have husband and wife's names in this field together?

Hi Wizard,

This behaviour is not configurable. Act is designed to have one name per contact, not two peoples, i.e. Husband and Wife.
The Secondary Contacts, or Contact Relationships tabs are designed for this purpose.

Here's an article that explains how to use Secondary Contacts. http://kb.swiftpage.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13919

That is what I kinda figured, but I wanted to ask anyway..

I was thinking that maybe someone thought of a work around. 

Thanks for the help and the great link. Not sure if I will be able to incorporate this into what I have already done and all the previous work in my database that goes back to ACT vs 3
