Linking to a .pdf file in rise

Feb 22, 2017

Is there a way to link to a .pdf in rise? I see how to link to a web page or another rise lesson, but I need users to be able to download a document from the site. Any ideas or workarounds?

Hey Patricia, im not sure if you got your question answered but I came across the same issue. My work around was to store the pdf in dropbox and then use the button feature to link to the file stored in my dropbox account. You can even set up some read only permissions etc. here! hope that helped

Hi Gerry,

You can upload attachments to your Rise 360 course using the attachments block. If you'd like to link out to other resources, you can use the button block. Do those solutions work for you? If not, would you be up for logging a feature request to tell us more about your specific needs?

In the meantime, if there’s anything else I can do to help, please let me know!

Thanks, Sofia. If that happens when you're testing the Share link of your course, we can have a closer look in a case with you! Click here to open one.

It will be helpful to have the Share link of your course and if possible, the URL to your XLF files. We keep everything private, and we'll delete any files you send us once we're done troubleshooting.
