    How does the Preview PDF Widget work

    Asked by rachelconnors on August 21, 2014 at 11:32 PM

    I am using the PDF Previews widget and I can't figure out any way to view the uploaded PDFs? Can you help me understand how to access those files?

    Please test also the demo form http://form.myjotform.com/form/41242004590543 

    in the PDF Preview Widget.

    Follow the screenshots below on how you can test the form.

    After uploading the PDF file, you can do a PREVIEW of the PDF file even without even submitting the form yet.


    The key here is, the form respondent will be able to make a preview of the PDF files they will upload and before they can submit finally the form.

    It gives the form respondent an opportunity to review and highlight the PDF file they wanted to submit.

    Hope this help. Inform us if you need further assistance.
