    Can I have a page within a form that stores pdf forms that the applicant needs to print-out to execute? In other words, it’s needed information for the application but will be sent in later or brought to a personal meeting.

    You mentioned "will be sent in later or brought to a personal meeting" so I don't think placing it on a form is a good solution. If it's a file that a person needs to print or store on a thumb drive, why not just send the file to the intended person via email, chat, etc.?

    Nonetheless, if you want to place a link inside your form that allows someone to download it, refer to the detailed guide I'm linking below.

    Complete guide: How-to-Add-a-Downloadable-File-to-Your-Form 

    This guide should apply regardless of what kind of file you would like to add to your form, whether it's a PDF file, a .docx file, and so on.

    So if these forms were on our website, I can use those urls as links to these downloadable forms?

    Yes, you can use the direct link of the PDF file hosted on your web server.

    You may also embed the PDF file in the form using the PDF Embedder widget. Here's a guide: https://www.jotform.com/help/153-How-to-Display-a-PDF-Document-on-Your-Form.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.
