    Can I use data entered into the beginning of the form later in the form?

    For example, if at the start of the form I add a 'Organisation' field, can I use the data entered into that field later in the form. i.e.- at the 'Submit' button I have a statement "That I am authorised on behalf of {organistaion} to submit this form"?

    Yes you can. But I recommend using TextArea field instead of the TEXT field for it.

    Its because the TEXT field is a static read-only field. So you can use it in update/calculation function as it does not have input property.

    You can setup the condition like this
