    How do I create a link to a PDF document?

    Asked by a_nazim2005 on March 12, 2012 at 03:25 PM

    Hi All,

    Please help me out with this question! I essentially want to create a link where when the user clicks on it, a PDF document opens with more details (in my case a contract document). I'm sure it's fairly straightforward but I have not been able to figure it out.

    Thanks much, Zori

    If you want to add a link to a PDF document on your form, you can do it by using the Free Text (HTML) tool found under the Power Tools section.

    For instructions on how to do this, check out this similar thread.

    If you want to display the actual PDF document in your form, such as these samples (direct iframealternative iframe), go to this page to learn more.

    Should you have further questions or if you need clarifications on the steps laid out in any of the forum threads I suggested, do not hesitate to let us know.

    We look forward to serving you more. Thank you for using JotForm!
