    How can I upload my pdf form with no URL

    Asked by test3 on October 30, 2014 at 11:11 PM

    << Original Question and ANSWER

    Hello ashwin_d,

    I have tested your answer but it is not working. I also want to upload a pdf file in jotform for my students, but after completing the total process when I open my form in new tab then it automatically download the pdf file. It does not show the “pdf. Preview”. So, my question is – is it possible to upload a pdf file in jotform for preview (@ pdf. File has no URL)? If not then please suggest me a website or process by which I can get the URL of pdf.

    Thank You.

    In that case, I would suggest uploading the PDF files to your website instead of using the method that was suggested by Ashwin. Then you are free to embed it using the PDF Embedder widget or using this method:

    But I also need to clarify whether you just want to display the PDF to the form or you want to create a form in Jotform that would look like your existing PDF forms. Please let us know!

    Thank you!
