Mailchimp Zap Doesn't Enable Me to Separate First and Last Names


I set up my Thinkific -> Mailchimp integration tonight using Zapier to add a new user to my mailing list when they sign up for my course.

However, when I try to edit the template in the "Add/Update Subscriber" section to include First and Last name, my only relevant option to select from the Thinkific end is "User Name," which includes both first and last.

Is there a way to change this, please? I don't want to have to manually separate the first and last names in Mailchimp every time someone signs up for my course.


Hi Kirsty!

I tried out a few different Triggers and was seeing "User First Name" and "User Last Name" as separate options for the Action in MailChimp:


By the "V1 Legacy" I'm seeing in the screenshot, it may be that you're using an older version of our Zapier integration. (Our previous integration didn't separate first name and last name, which we knew was very inconvenient!)

If you try disconnecting and reconnecting Thinkific to Zapier, does this change?

Please let us know how you get on!




I guess this answer is from more than a year ago, since I can see that Thinkific now has a propietary integration with Mailchimp without using Zapier. Could you please update the answer and tell me which fields can I fill out in Mailchimp? It would be ideal if at least I could get the "First name" field and email.



Hi David! Here's the full details on our Mailchimp Integration.
