I am very familiar with creating landing pages, CTA's, etc. I need help creating a download for product sheets for people to download and e-books that people will download. Ideally I'd like to use the e-book as a carrot to gram contact information and setup a workflow to this with marketing drip campaign.
While I love a good workaround, it would be great to get Hubspot's attention on this. With the pop-up form, it's so easy to simply have a download link on the thank you page. Why isn't this also possible with a normal form? Not even when using the "template" for eBook/file download. Seems like a development oversight.

Creating a download or e-book download
The lone change is in the install code, so you could utilize a similar structure, changing just the url for each record in the implant code. Could be valuable to make a shrouded field to particular which digital book was downloaded.
I'm trying to use this solution so that when the user fills in the fields on my form and clicks on submit, they download an eBook, but at the moment with this code it just opens the file in a new tab and doesn't download it. However, after some research, I managed to use the following code:
Even if the "download" attribute has been set in the code, depends on the specific browser how to handle this request. Nowadays most of the browsers can open pdf files. Users can configure in their browsers if the pdf files should be downloaded or opened.
The only change is in the embed code, so you could use the same form, changing only the url for each file in the embed code. Could be useful to create a hidden field to distinct which ebook was downloaded.
