    Checking in to see if there is a way to pass a value from https://form.jotform.com/92301208201136 to https://form.jotform.com/92315327661153

    Be aware the 1153 is a form embeded in 1136 with the iframe embed widget.

    Specifically, I am showing dates on 1136 depending on the current date (see conditions), I want to

    pass the date shown to 1153 as a pickup date. I'd figure first I would have to insert the shown date

    into another field in 1136 but I don't know how to use show conditions and insert simultaneously.

    The harder part is passing to the embedded ifram 1153--does jotform have that working yet?

    Data can be passed from one form to another only when a form is submitted. 

    How to Automatically Pass Form Data to Another Form

    Considering that your main form 1136 does not have a submit button you cannot pass the data to the other form. 

    You should move all date fields to the embedded form 1153, as you will not be able to collect the data from the form 1136 considering that it does not have a submit button. 

    The main form 1136 should any have the "Payment Option" filed.
