"email" field turns into "name" using REST API

If I send a simple record, such as: "contacts": [ { "email": "my@email.com", "data": { "somefield": "somevalue" } }] When I view that record in Knowtify it will not have an "email" field but instead will have a "name" field with "my@email.com"

It's worth mentioning that if I add "name" as a "data" field, it will show up as "name" and the email will disappear completely. If I add "email" as a data field, it will show the email as "email" and as "name".

Yeah definitely looks like a bug. We have some logic to use the email as the name if a contact is created without a name but what you're describing definitely sounds like a bug. I'll look into it.
