    Could you please provide us more details?

    Note that JotForm is a form builder. It allows you to create online forms. The online forms can be filled out by opening the form link on a web browser and clicking the submit button. 

    Below are the options that you can try based on what I understand on your requirements:

    Option #1:

    If you want your users to click a link on your form to download a separate word or document file, then that is possible. 

    1. First, upload your document file on a storage service like Dropbox or Google Drive. 

    2. Get the direct download link there. 

    3. After that, add the "Tex" field in your form. This will be used as a message and we will anchor the link on the text so that they can click it. 

    4. Your users now can click a link on your form and download a file. You can also add a file upload field if you want to to upload the signed document when they submit the online form. 


    Option #2:

    You can use the PDF Embedder widget that allows you to embed your PDF file on your online form. To add a widget, you can follow the steps on this link: https://www.jotform.com/help/252-How-to-Add-a-Widget-to-your-Form 


    Option #3:

    If what you want to accomplish is to let your users sign something, then that is possible by adding signature widgets on your online form. Below are some examples:








    I hope that helps.
