Is there a method to pass a Watch variable so that it is added to the PDI? I would prefer to handle this totally within Watch instead of adding this to all of the forms. (hundreds of forms)

Just pass it in one of the JobInfos and make sure to specify you want those JobInfos passed to the document when you select it in the PP-image output.

In your document, you can then refer to those JobInfos using a Custom Data Selection.
