Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

Yes, you can create shortcuts for PDF files and then push them to Android devices locked down to Kiosk mode.
The desired file that is to be deployed to the target device has to be uploaded to the Hexnode repository at first. Navigate to Admin-> File Management to find the option to upload the file.
Once the file is uploaded, you can create a shortcut for the file. Go to Apps-> File Shortcuts and click on Create File Shortcut. Enter the details and click Create.
The shortcut can now be added to the Kiosk policy. Navigate to Kiosk Lockdown-> Android Kiosk Lockdown-> Single App/ Multi-App, click on the + icon and select the file shortcut. Click Done. Please note to associate targets and save the policy.
The file will now be pushed to the target devices.
