    How can I upload a word doc or PDF of a contract

    Asked by Suzanne  on July 02, 2014 at 11:10 AM


    How can I upload a word doc or PDF of a contract that needs to be signed?  

    Or is there a way to just copy and paste the text into the form?

    Please let me know.

    Hello Suzanne,

    Unfortunately, you cannot upload PDF/word document on our server. The files needs to be uploaded to your server web / ftp or any file sharing server.

    To show a PDF document in your form, you can add a "PDF Embedder" widget in your form which will display the required PDF file. You will need to provide your PDF URL along with the height/widgt.

    Once the pdf is added in your form, you can add any "Signature" widget in your form so that your users can sign it.

    Another way to show the contract in your form is by adding a "Text" field in your form and the copy / paste the entire contract text there. Please check the screenshot below:

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
