    Hello philipgardner,

    There are two options to to achieve your requirement:

    1. Build a form and add a "Text" field to show a hyperlink to your google docs. Users can click on the hyperlink which will load your google docs in a new window and come back to the form to complete the survey. Please take a look at the following demo form which I have created:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40543654971964

    2. Another way is to embed your google doc in the form itself. It will display/load your google doc in the same form which your users can review and scroll down to input survey. Idea is to add a "Text" field in form and use iFrame to embed the google doc in the form. Please take a look at the following form and see if this suits your need: http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40544893197970

    Feel free to clone these form in your account for closer look. The following guide should help you in form cloning:  http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-Clone-an-Existing-Form-from-a-URL
