Download button/icon/option from URL

Hello all,

 

Can anyone tell me if there's a way to add a download button to a dashboard? I currently have a table listing details on a project. The final column uses an URL linked to a PDF on teams. I can click it and download the PDF, but I want it to be more obvious. Ideally a large icon in the middle of the screen that shows a download button/icon/option when a single file is selected. I've tried using a second table with just that column but it's just not working correctly right now.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

If you create a shape, you can set the action to trigger a web url. 
Create a measure which equals the link to the currently selected file and then reference that shape in the measure.

Shape action, based on field "Measure"Shape action, based on field "Measure"

Measure = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Column1])
