Hi,

You need to have a web server that serves the PDF file. You can then use a http or (preferably) a https link.

If I'm not wrong you should provide an http url address. This could be possible in a straight table.

You can upload your pdf files into Dropbox or Google Drive, for instance, and then share a link (http url). So, these url's could be used into you QS app.
