    I would like to set a counter that will track the number of downloads/views of my pdf files as given in the following web page:


    For example, a number will increase after eac hit of my file and show it in numerical values such as,

    Downloads: 1 ; this will increase gradually upon download.

    If my assumptions are correct, you would like to have your PDF file shown on your form and count the amount of hits it gets by your users? If this is so, I did some checks and it appears that there are no widget or app in place currently to provide this feature. 

    Before I go ahead and submit a feature ticket to our development team, I would like you to confirm if this is exactly what you are requesting. If not, I apologize and I would welcome additional information so that I will be better able to assist. I will await your response.

    Can you please give us a bit more details about the form and its purpose?

    I took a look at the website, but I see that it is not based on jotform, there is a HTML page with the links to PDF files.

    I am not sure how the links to the PDF would be created, would they change and as many other details that you can tell us will be good.

    Thank you.
