    We use a Jotform Form for submitting employee receipts. Employees can use the form to take a photo of the receipt. They also have the option to upload a PDF of the receipt. Jotform's PDF editor displays image files, but it does not display PDFs. Instead of displaying the PDF upload, it displays the PDF's file name. How do I get Jotform's PDF editor to display uploaded PDFs in the output PDF?

    Hi,

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to show the PDFs directly in the PDF report.
    Unlike images, PDFs will always show as a link.

    If you want all of the attachments to show directly on the PDF, you can restrict the uploadable files to image files only on your form.
