Hello Benjamin,

You can drop a  "Text & Image" Graphic into your dashboard.

Then, write something on the box (eg. "PDF Link") and select it. By clicking the link symbol you'll be asked for an URL.                     

Past your pfd file url and now you should have a clickable url for your file.

The following image may help you

Hello thank you for your answer but I have already made this and put this URL bellow 'link para':

'C:\Users\hhueser\Desktop\Desktop\Ontex\\Competition mapping MRM Sept 2014 - Final.xlsx'

Could you tell me what is wrong?

Thank you,

Hello Benjamin,

You are using a local path for the file, try uploading the file somewhere on the internet (Dropbox or something like that) and use the public url then.

Check mega.co.nz , is also a good option if you don't have a Dropbox account. Easy to use, just upload your PDF and right-click it in order to get the public URL
