First & Last Name Fields


Starting with Goldenseal 3.9, we now have separate fields for First Name, Last Name and Suffix, for Customer accounts and Employee accounts.

You can use them for more accurate printing of W-2 forms in our payroll software, and for more directed marketing to your customers when using any version of our small business software.
