    how do i share the pdf that i uploaded to my account?

    Asked by simplecomplexity on June 24, 2015 at 03:25 PM

    I uploaded a PDF using the migration tool, but how do I make said PDF a part of an already existing form that I was building with you guys. I want my users to have to fill in the PDF before submitting the entire form that I've created.

    When the PDF is created is created a a separate form with its own submissions section, you can integrate with an existing form.

    As a workaround you can provide the users with a link to the PDF on the form you want them to fill before submission.

    You can then instruct them to upload the PDF after filling and submitting it, they can then proceed with filing the rest of the form.

    The best way of sharing the link, is to download a copy of the pdf, with the 'Auto Collect' option

    Save the pdf to google drive/dropbox and generate a sharable link, in your form, use the text input to paste the link (you can use a url shotener if needed)

    Next add the file upload button and mark it as required, then set the allowed files to pdf only


    I hope the above instructions will be of assistance to you, if you need more information/clarification feel free to contact us.
