How to add video, audio and PDF files on your form

You can add video, audio and PDF files directly onto your form quickly and easily.

By using the Widget field, you can have interactive elements on your form, such as playable audio/video files or scrollable, zoomable and printable PDFs. By doing so, you can provide all of the relevant information on the form by simply adding a link to an outside source. This means there is no need to go through the hassle of creating an embed code.

Here is a complete guide on how to embed files:

Step One – Adding the Widget

The Widget field is located under the Other Fields section of your editor.

Step Two – Choosing the right Widget for you

Once the Widget is added, you will be able to choose the platform that best suits your form’s needs.

  • Adobe PDF
  • Soundcloud
  • Facebook Post
  • Facebook Page
  • TED
  • NFB
  • Kickstarter
  • Dailymotion

After selecting the app to be embedded, the next step is to provide the URL of the file that will show up on the form.
