How can I attach a .pdf file to my form?Asked by carolsnyder on June 03, 2014 at 02:37 PM
My form is for people requesting to use our church's facility. We have a 4 page document that someone must read and agree to, in order to submit their request. Is there a way to attach the 4-page .pdf to the form?
Yes, you can show your PDF document on your Form.
- You canshow your PDF directly on your form by using our PDF Embedder widget: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/pdf_embedder
All you need to do is to embed the PDF URL and set the Width and Height values.
With this method you will need to add an additional Check box make your form users agree to the terms and conditions.
- You also have the option to use our Terms & Conditions: http://widgets.jotform.com/widget/terms__conditions
This widget is a checkbox field that allows you to embed your terms and conditions page/pdf into the label of the field, that way your users can read and agree to the terms at the same time.
Please inform us if you need further assistance with this query.
I have embedded my .pdf into my form, and it is viewable in the edit mode of jotform - BUT it is not viewable on my website (the .pdf just shows white space).
I tested embeding this form and it appears fine on our end. Do you have more specifics about the URL it's posted on, and the browser/OS used to access it? A first step when encountering inconsistencies like this is to clear the browser cache, refresh the page, and try again. Please do that and let us know if the issue still persists, along with the details on where the form is being accessed.
Also, I noticed the area for the PDF viewer extends further below than necessary. To adjust this click the magic wand, and set the height/width as desired. 2000/550 seems to look better on my end.
Let us know if the above resolves your issue, or please provide more details for us to check into this further. Thanks!
