Prompt for last names

Postby bobrinaldi » Mon Apr 29, 2013 9:15 am

Is there a way to disable the need to enter a customers last name in the database when entering an order? We are strictly carry out and do not find the need to enter anything more than first name, phone number and maybe email address. Everytime we enter a new phone number and name for an order the system prompts us for more than just the first name.

That field is "indexed" in the database, and therefore needs a value. There is no way to turn this off, as it would break some features elsewhere and mess up some reports that use the last name field.

A little late on the issue... but anyways, just use the LASTNAME field instead of the FIRSTNAME field. problem solved/worked around.
