    Hello @cowsert

    Thank you for your message. Here is how you can add a button with a custom link into your form:

    1 - Add the Paragraph field located in the basic elements

    2 - Add the link to the File from Google Drive 


    We can stop here but we can also make the user have a better experience by making the link look like a button. We can do this using CSS, fortunately we can edit the source code of the LINK:

    3 - Click on the Source Code button on the top left.


    4 - Add the CSS property using the style attribute. You can customize it using CSS codes from. Here are some beautiful CSS buttons I have found: https://freefrontend.com/css-buttons/

    We will use a simple blue button with rounded corners in our example:

    <a style="display: block; height: 45px; background: #4E9CAF; text-align: center; border-radius: 5px; color: white; font-weight: bold; line-height: 45px;" target="_blank" href="https://docs.google.com/document/d/1oeQPyOtnRHxDXoeGvg0A3Hs02zNr6KOLzbdWlc3iHj0/edit?usp=sharing" rel="nofollow noopener ugc" rel="noopener noreferrer">Click here to open the file</a>

    5- Finally Save the changes


    Here we have our button which will take us to the file from Google Drive.  1591691654paragraph.gif
