    This is all nice and such but does not really answer my specific question.

    After a user submits form A, I want the email address they entered from form A to be provided to form B's Recurring Email list of email recipients. But it would need to append to this list, not replace it. Can that be done? If so, how do I get around the email address limit per Recurring Email?

    Hello! Thank you for contacting us. As far as I understand your requirement, you want email address from "Form A" to be automatically included in the Reminder Email list of "Form B" via pre-populating functionality.

    If I've understood your requirement correctly then kindly note that it won't be possible. Pre-population can only be used to pass data from Form to Form. Other aspects of the form like settings, reminders emails etc. can't be passed with it.

    I hope this information helps. For further questions, feel free to write back to us.

    Thank you!

    Yes that is what I am requesting. And BTW, without any hardware
    restrictions, passing data to different instances of things (forms) within
    JotForm should not be a problem. After all, you offer integration with
    other external applications, why not integrate your own forms within an
    account? You just need to think about how to pass it (or make it
    available) by tagging it for use by a form. If you think about in Excel
    how you can use data from 1 worksheet on a different worksheet; it's done
    with tags. You already provide 'form elements' to be included into the
    same form. If you can offer other forms' elements, that would do the
    trick. Almost like setting up global variables within a software program.
    And in response to your last comment, with software anything is possible.
