    Hi,

    If you can use a pdf format for your code of conduct document, you can use this guide.

    You can also provide a link to your uploaded document using its shared link within the form.

    Example, if you have document in google drive from using the integration, you can share the link for the document from google drive, and simple put a text with link in your form to access the document.

    Please inform us if you have further inquiry.

    Thank.s

    HI I used your Direct iFrame Method and pasted a google doc URL and it worked. It did not work when I used the Google Docs PDF Renderer. I have the file but I don't like the way it displays. I would like the whole doc to show in the frame user would currently have to move into view. How can I correct that? Also, I want to "collapse" the docs, I want to add several more and I don't want a long form with all these pages showing. I plan on putting some instruction in the hover text so they can expand the doc and collapse the doc. I don't want the doc to be the first thing that pops up when they link to the form. Am I making sense??
    Thanks!

    Hi Mariannce,

    I would like the whole doc to show in the frame user would currently have to move into view. How can I correct that?

    - You ca use a third party sites that allows you to embed the docs, something like, Slideshare. This allows you to control the sizes before embedding.

    Also, I want to "collapse" the docs, I want to add several more and I don't want a long form with all these pages showing

    - You can use our Form Collapse Tool with this.

    I hope this helps and thank you very much.

    The form collapse did not work. Also, I can't see anything on my form after the doc shows up. Acutally, the doc now is not showing inside the form and I didn't do anything

    Hi,

    Check this Out: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/23026096465959? Is this something good? 

    I accomplish this using our Form Collapse Tool and our Free Text HTML field under Power Tools with the presence of a third party site.

    Please let us know if you are interested with this so I can assist or give you the full guide.

    Thanks

    Yes, I like that. Please provide directions. Can I use dropbox for the third party site. Is Shareslide free? Make sure you give directions for titling the "collapser".
    thanks

    Hi Marianned,

    If dropbox allows you to embed an iframe codes, then yes. If not, then I'm sorry, it's no. Slideshare is always a free, I've been using their service for about a year until now.

    Using Form Collapse Tool:

    Register for Slideshare Account, Uploading Files is easy on them. Once you have finished uploading your file you will be redirected to the embed options, just the copy the embed iframe codes and place them under our Free Text HTML field:

    Additional Information about Slideshare are seen on their website.

    Thank you very much.

    Hi,

    Here's the iframe codes;

    <iframe src="//www.slideshare.net/slideshow/embed_code/14938617" width="574" height="613" frameborder="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" style="border:1px solid #CCC;border-width:1px 1px 0;margin-bottom:5px" allowfullscreen> </iframe> <div style="margin-bottom:5px"> <strong> <a target="_blank" href="http://www.slideshare.net/vincecudz/barangay-certification" rel="nofollow noopener" title="Barangay Certification" >Barangay Certification</a> </strong> from <strong><a target="_blank" href="http://www.slideshare.net/vincecudz" rel="nofollow noopener" >Vince Cudas</a></strong> </div>

    Please do not copy this codes, slideshare will give you another codes to embed. Please refer to my response above. Cheers!

    Thank you very much.

    THank you Welvin, that worked beautifully and is perfect! The only thing I have an issue with now is my font color. My form is dark green and my font is white!!! I would like to change the color of the font in the Form Collapse field! Otherwise, it's unreadable as it is white as well.

    Hi Marianne,

    My form is dark green and my font is white...

    - Your font color is Black

    I would like to change the color of the font in the Form Collapse field! 

    - Inject the following codes;

    #collapse-text_43 {

    color: green;

    }

    Change the color to the one that suits your needs.

    Thanks and Cheers!

    Ok, my next question is. With the form collapse. Why do all the "questions"/ fields disappear when the doc/form is collapsed but reappear when the doc/form is expanded? Is there a way to keep those fields visible at all times. I don't want users to skip over fields. I will make them required fields, so I guess if they try and submit, it will revert back to the missing fields?

    Hi Marianne,

    You need to add another form collapse after the embedded slideshare codes, set the Form Collapse as Open and Hidden.

    The output: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/23034108859959?

    Thanks :)

    Do I have to add an additional form collapse after each doc I plan on adding or can I just insert the hidden one after all of them. I plan on having three docs to read.

    Answered by Welvin on October 30, 2012 at 11:07 AM

    Yes, if you do not want them to be placed in one Form Collapse Tool. You can set your Form Collapse tool as OPEN and HIDDEN if there are fields following the first form collapse you want to remain OPEN. Just insert this before the docs.

    Hoping that I explain it well. Thanks

    Having trouble with the different form collapases. I could have all three doc in one form collapse, but am having trouble getting the third one there and now, I don't know what I did.
    Should I embed all three docs in the one html field? then after that use the open/hidden collapser??

    I suggest you to use one Form Collapse and Free Text HTML field each of your doc. To avoid a certain problem.

    Thanks

    Ok, I did that, but now only the first form collapse font is green the others are white. Also, the rest of the form is not visible after the docs, it just goes to submit
