    Good Christmas morning! I have just put up a new website that sells my opera scores. I would like to be able to have a link in the description section that offers a free PDF libretto download. No form is involved at all; people would click the link to access words to opera films that are also on the site. Is this possible with Jotform? GoDaddy, my website host, suggested you . . . Many thanks. Susan Bingham

    Hi there,

    Thank you for contacting support.

    First, let me introduce you to what is Jotform?

    Jotform is a powerful online application that allows anyone to quickly create custom online forms. Its intuitive drag-and-drop user interface makes form building incredibly simple and doesn’t require you to write a single line of code. Using Jotform, you can create and publish forms, integrate them into your site, and receive responses by email.


    It is possible with Jotform when you want to include a file that your users can download, whether it's right within your form, on the Autoresponder Emails they get, or on the Thank You page right after form submission. In your case, it would be within your form.

    ✅ You want to place a downloadable libretto PDF file right on the form that they can download.

    The main goal is to have your file hosted elsewhere and add a link to your form that your users can click to download the file.

    1. Upload your file, hosted elsewhere (e.g. Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.)

    2. Get the direct download link of your file

    3. Adding a downloadable link to your form

    Here's a demo form that shows all these: https://www.jotform.com/71245972238966


    Then, you can embed the form to your web page

    1. Go to the Publish tab in the Form Builder

    2. Select the Embed option.

    3. Click the Copy Code button.

    4. Paste the code into your web page where you would like to display it, usually somewhere in the body of the page.
