    My understanding is that you want to attach a file/document in the form where you users can download it.

    It is possible, but you need to upload the file first in your web server. After that, you need to get the direct link of that file. In the Form Builder, you can insert a link that will redirect the user to the file uploaded in your web server. Here's a guide on how to insert an external link:

    1. Insert a "Text" field. Highlight the text and then click the "Insert/edit link" button.

    2. Put the link in the "URL" field and then click the "OK" button.

    3. Here's the result:

    You may also attach a file in the Autoresponder email. In this way, once the user completed the form, they will receive an email with attachment. Please refer to this guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/393-How-to-Attach-a-File-to-Autoresponder-Emails

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
