    Is it possible to upload a document for people to read into a form?

    Asked by sandk0330 on June 21, 2012 at 04:36 PM

    I would like to be able to insert a document and then ask questions about the document.  Is that possible?

    If your document is in PDF format, please refer to this guide for a solution:

    http://www.jotform.com/help/153-How-to-Display-a-PDF-Document-On-Your-Form

    Otherwise, let us know the document file format and we will try to find a way to display it in your form.

    By the way, it is not possible to upload a document to our server. You must upload the file on your own  host.

    Hi Jackie,

    Neil had provided the link on the guide http://www.jotform.com/help/153-How-to-Display-a-PDF-Document-On-Your-Form on his initial response that shows how to do it in the form.

    Please inform us if you have concern following the guide.

    Thanks.
