How to Include a Link on the PDF Copy of Submissions

March 11, 2024

If you plan to add terms and conditions in the form, the Terms & Conditions widget would be ideal. However, if you want to include the link to the terms and conditions in the PDF copy of the submission, the widget can’t do that. Jotform recommends adding the link directly to the form or the PDF document to do it.

This method uses the Paragraph element. We recommend this method since you will have the link through the form, and when you create the PDF document, the link is one of the form elements that is automatically added.

  1. In the Form Builder, click the Add Form Element button.
  2. Scroll down, and under the Basic Elements, drag/drop the Paragraph element to your form.

If you don’t want to display a link in the form, you can add a link directly in the PDF document through the PDF Editor.

  1. On the My Forms page, select your form.
  2. Click the More button.
  3. Under the Data column, click the Open PDF Editor or Create PDF Document option.

  1. Drag/drop the Text element to your PDF document.
  2. Double-click the element or click the gear icon (settings) to start editing. See the GIF below for the steps.
