Bring one entry from a form into another form?

Hello everyone, I was hoping someone could help.

 

I have an app with five different forms on five different screens that feed five different SharePoint lists. 

There's an entry on form 1 that we will call Name. This name will be the same on the next four forms. Is there a way to set the Name card on form 2 to default to the Name entered on form 1?

 

Hope that makes sense, thanks anyone in advance

Hi @pricey79 ,

Set a Variable on the OnChange of the first entry control - I am assuming a Text Box here

Set(gblName,Self.Text)

the Default of the subsequent controls (allowing for then to be used in View/Edit mode as well

If(
   !IsBlank(gblName),
   gblName,
   Parent.Default
)
