    Attaching a file to JotForm

    Asked by nbaxter0223 on February 09, 2016 at 12:18 PM


    I see the option to upload a file to the published jotform, but I don't see the option to upload a file to the actual form while creating it. Is there any way that I can do so?

    Thank you for contacting us. I am not fully understanding exactly what you are looking for. I have just review your form and noticed that you already have the upload file field

    Can you please explain what you are referring to with upload a file to the actual form while creating it?

    I would like to be able to attach a document that is already created for guest completing the form to be able to view and print. I don’t need a file field for the guest to be able to upload.
    Does that clarify? Is that possible.

    In the first place the only way to attach documents to a form is using the file upload field. If I understand you correctly, you would like to attach (upload) a file to an already submitted form. Fell free to correct me if I have misunderstood you and indicate how you would like to attach the file to the form.

    In the email notification you can add a link to edit the form
