    Thanks for contacting us.

    You can use the google drive or dropbox integration feature of the form to be able to upload the files. Then, just put a link to the files from google drive or dropbox into the form via link.

    It is possible to embed a PDF file in your form by using PDF embedded widget.

    This widget allows you to display PDF files directly on your form:

    Please note, it still needs a PDF link uploaded to your hosting space or Google Drive or Dropbox.

    If you have any query or need further assistance, feel free to revert back.
