Implementing custom column from form in colModel

Dear Devs:

In \"Form Submissions\" display of \"Tracking\" page, I would like to implement (a) custom column(s)  namely \"First Name\" and \"Last Name\" respectively, extrapolated from textfield inputs from a single form.

In 'c-forms-database.php', 'colModel' (line 56) displays:

colModel : [
 {display: '#', name : 'id', width : 40, sortable : true, align: 'center'},
 {display: '', name : 'form_id', width : 240, sortable : true, align: 'center'},
 {display: '', name : 'email', width : 200, sortable : true, align: 'center'},
 {display: '', name : 'sub_date', width : 160, sortable : true, align: 'center'},
 {display: '', name : 'ip', width : 100, sortable : true, align: 'center'},
 {display: '', name : 'name=\"cf_field_7\"', width : 200, sortable : true, align: 'center'} // psychopomp : added


As you can see, I've attempted implementation of additional column 'Last Name', which corresponds with 'cf_field_7' of my form. This method clearly does not work. Comparable snippets from working code encoded in Jade (JavaScript) appear as such:

'Form' equivalent:

p Name (Head of Household)
    input(class=\"span3\", type=\"text\", placeholder=\"First\", required, name='nameFirst', value='#{user.first_name}')
    input(class=\"span3\", type=\"text\", placeholder=\"Last\", required, name='nameLast', value='#{user.last_name}')

'Form Submissions' equivalent:

      th Full Name
      th Email Address
      th Date Submitted
      th Date Updated
      th Status
    for u in users

To summarize my question, then: how might I extrapolate data from a given form, so as to populate in a custom \"Form Submissions\" column? Simply put, I would like to review/order (i.e., asc/desc) a list of form submissions by the users 'Last Name' &/or 'First Name'. 

Any information concerning the above shall be sincerely appreciated.
