    If you would like your users to upload a file document on your form, you can do that by adding a file upload field. Here's a guide that you can follow: http://www.jotform.com/help/332-How-to-create-upload-forms 

    Let us know if that works.

    Rather than users uploading forms, we would like users to be able to download forms that we have put on there. Is this doable?

    That's possible if you will use the "Text" field. Here's a screenshot to do that:


    Basically, it's like a word editor,, you can attach the downloadable PDF link to the text so that your users can download it. You'll need to host the documents on a file hosting site like Google Drive, Dropbox or the likes.

    Here's a test form to show how it work: https://form.jotform.com/60144982417962.
