    Hello Jotform team,

    I am using a Main Form to show a payment selection (PayPal / Bank-in / COD). Once user selected Bank-in or COD, it shows another form. Can I pass the first selection (Bank-in or COD) to second form, which I can record the action.

    Please advice

    Yes, that would be possible by enabling the POST data setting on your form.

    Basically, by enabling POST data submission on your form, the information submitted from form 1 can be forwarded and pre-fill your 2nd form. You can either point your Thank you page to your 2nd form, or give a link to your thank you page with the pre-filled information from form 1 to form 2.

    The process found on this guide will give you a good idea how you can forward post data from one form to another:
