    How do you get a url for my pdf?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi There,

    When you say 'download a pdf on my website' does it mean that your
    form will contain a link that would allow users to download the pdf file
    without submiting data yet?

    In this case you can make use of the Free Text (HTML) to create
    a link to the PDF file. A Text Link is simply a text/line which has reference
    to another site/file. When somebody clicks on it they will be redirected to
    the targeted site/file. The url for the pdf is the address where you have
    stored the pdf file. For users to access the file it has to be saved in a
    webspace that can be accessed by everyone, there are several free file hosting
    available such as mediafire. You can upload the pdf file on a free file
    host then get the url to the file.

    1. Open your form in JotForm
    2. From the Power tools on the left menu choose Free Text (HTML)
    3. Click on 'Edit HTML" in the Free Text  field
    4. Type the text link in the Free text box
    5. Highlight the text and click on the chain (link) icon
        in the free text field.
    6. A pop up window will be displayed, you will need to enter the url to your PDF file.
