Display Contact Full Name in Related List

Hi All,


Probably a silly question, but here goes.

I have an object, Job_Position, with a Many-to-Many relationship with the Contact Object. The joining object is called Job_Placement.


On my Job_Position page layout I have added the Job_Placement related List. When configuring the fields to display in this related list I can choose the Contact First Name and Last Name, but I cannot see just Name (ie the full name).

As a workaround I could create a forumla field to compute the Full Name, but this doesn't seem like the correct solution.


What am I doing wrong?


Thanks for any help.


In my opinion, you will not be able to get the contact name. In the case of junction object First Name, Last Name is available. You need to do a workaround to get the Name.
