The Embed PDF field allows you to incorporate PDF files into the form so that your respondents could scroll through it while completing your form. You can find the field under the section Media & Structure.
Once the field has been added on your form, you can find different inputs on the left side panel. You will have to provide the URL for the PDF file. Please keep in mind that the link has to be secure (https format).
Also, you can change the field name so it could be easily recognizable by you in the Submissions table.
Respondents can perform the following actions onto the embedded PDF file:
a) Zoom out
b) Zoom in
c) Fit to page
d) Rotate counterclockwise
e)Download the file on their device
f) Print PDF
Important NoteIf you embed a fillable PDF, keep in mind that the information will not be delivered along with the submission entry, since the PDF is an external file.
Here is a list of the most frequently asked questions. For more FAQs, please browse through the FAQs page.
What if the PDF I want to embed does not have a URL?
Hi Katharine, in that case, you will need to upload the PDF file on a hosting site in order to retrieve a URL. PDF files can be embedded on forms only if you have a link to the file that also ends in the .pdf extension.
