Is it possible to add a file download link to a form?

In a webform trigger, I would like to provide a link to an Excel template file for the user to download. I have tried using a handlebar reference to an instance file field, within an instructions field type, and it didn't work. Any ideas?

    Hi @David_931366 ,

    Could you try the following and let me know if it works for you?

    1. Configure a File field in your workflow as an Instance Field and upload the Excel Template there
    2. Open up the File field again, right click the file uploaded under Default Value and select Copy Link Address
    3. Configure an Instructions field and use the following markdown -

      [Excel Template](insert link here)

    The result should be linked text that will download your excel template for the user to fill out.

    Let me know if you have any questions and I will be happy to help.

    Thank you!

    Hey Kalin,
    You got where I needed to be. Right-clicking on the uploaded file and copying the link was the key. After that, I simply used the hyperlink functionality in the Instruction Text feature and added the hyperlink.

    For some reason the markup you provided didn't work for me. As always, thanks for your help!
