Method to set different SSID on 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz

On this new router both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz share the same ssid. On previous router, I had one ssid for the 2.4 ghz and a different ssid for 5 ghz. On this new router, if I change one, it changes both. Any way to address this in a future fw release?

Why I want to do this: prevent re-configuring 5 different devices in the house that only work on 2.4 Ghz and that was how my previous router was configured. So saves time.
Thanks for all the help!
