According to this article: Insert Document Links, one should be able to insert a link to a stored file. The icon in the article appears to be a copy/paste icon (not sure if that matters) but I can't click it in my client's account.

Is there a simple way to insert a link to a file in Email? If we batch upload the files, is there a way to discover all the URLs? Content Builder creates some funky URLs, making it hard to write AMPscript to the content.


I assume you are hosting the document file in Content Builder using a supported file type.

In the Details section of the document in Content Builder there is a URL and a Copy button where you can grab the location of the hosted file.

Details in Content Builder of asset uploaded

Then you can link the asset in your email by using an <a href=""></a>
