    What you are asking, Andrea, ill depend on your exact needs and workflow with that PDF file.

    1. If your own PDF file is something like terms of use for your users to read, you can display such PDF documents on your JotForm form by adding them inside the PDF Embedder widget:

    2. If on the other hand you meant to have a fillable PDF form, then you will need to create your JotForm form with our easy-to-use Form Builder, and then create a fillable PDF out of your online JotForm form:
