    You will need to upload that document to a cloud or FTP server, and then copy the link to that document. After that, you will need to add a TEXT element, and add the following HTML code:

    <a target="_blank" href="YOUR_LINK"> YOUR TEXT </a> 

    Make sure to replace YOUR_LINK with the actual URL, and YOUR TEXT to whatever text you would link your link to say. Please see a video demonstration of this below:

    Thank you!
