    Can I upload a file on to the form that the person filling out the form can then download?

    Asked by Leadership_Houston on February 25, 2014 at 10:46 AM

    I have created an application for members to fill out. I would like to like to upload a document with information that they can download when they fill out the application. 

     

    then fill document

    Yes it is possible.

    First you need to host your file online, like in dropbox for example. Then you can go to the conditions wizard and choose "change thank you message after submission":

    Then edit the text (1), add the link (2) e (3) and click insert:

    Click save.

    Now when your users submit the form they will be redirected to this thank you message with the download link.

    Kindly let us know if you need more assistance.

    Good afternoon,

     would you like to allow your users to automatically download a file after they hit a submit button? If, so let me inform you that's not possible with the current  version of Jotform, you could add that function to the form by getting the source code of the form and applying some additional codding .

    If you dont mind you could make this by using some workaround :

     

    For example

    You could use Thank you page 

    for either

    placing a download link on the Thank you page that shows after

    successful submission 


    or by redirecting the customers directly to the download file by using Custom URL option

    like in this example

    this could serve you if you can`t program  and customize  the Thank you page to suit your needs .

    Wish you a lucrative and happy afternoon!

    Damir
