Field for Middle Name for Contact (please add)

Self explanatory.  Hard to believe the field does not exist.

  • Agreed! I just added a vote for this as well. :)

    For the time being a workaround is to add the initial or middle name after the first name.  I know its not an ideal solution; but worth a shot.

  • Absolutely needed - an email merge has no way of differentiating whether a second name is part of someone's full first name to be used in formal correspondence (e.g. "Bobby Jo"), or is a second initial or nickname that should not be used (e.g. "Scout").

  • I agree. There needs to be a middle name and suffix option. Truly need this option, and somewhat offended that they don't have the middle name feature as I use my middle name always.

  • This is a must need fields added for both suffix and middle name!

  • My occupation means I deal with many people from different countries who can have two to three middle names.

    For my practice I need to be able to record all names for legal purposes and this is an oversight by Insightly which should be addressed as a priority.

  • I totally agree. This is a bad glitch in Insightly that MUST be repaired quickly.

  • Hi all:

    This hasn't found a place on our road map but we will be sure to let you know if anything changes.

    Some users have added their Contact's middle name as part of the first or last name so that it is still part of the record, maybe this can work for you too.

  • Hard to believe this is missing in the first place let alone "Not on our Road Map".  Can you name any other application that stores contacts that does not have this field?  Even the address book that came on my old flip phone had this field.

  • Hi Dan:

    We completely acknowledge the use case, we've just focused on other features for now. Thank you for showing your support for this request.

  • Fully agree with this - would make the personalization (merge) email features more useful.

  • Agree that this is needed, especially as it's a cultural thing.

  • Has the roadmap been updated. Middle name and why not Nickname while you are there.
