Services that Enable You to Directly Link to Documents
Quicklinks link to website URLS, not directly to a document. Many online storage services such as DropBox, Box, Microsoft SharePoint, and Google Drive allow documents to be accessed from these locations by way of a direct URL. Therefore to use documents with Quicklinks you must have access to one of these storage services so as to give your documents a direct URL.
Many systems like DropBox offer a free service with plenty of capacity for the average company. This document discusses the use of Quicklinks only. For information on file storage services you should access their own websites.
