Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

You can push PDf files to Android devices in Kiosk mode.
The file has to be added to the Hexnode repository for it to be deployed to the target devices. For this, navigate to Admin-> File Management, click on Choose files and select the file to be deployed. Click on Upload.
Once the file has been uploaded, you can create a shortcut for the file and add it to the devices.
Follow the below steps for shortcut creation:

  1. Navigate to Apps-> File Shortcuts and click on Create File Shortcut. 
  2. Enter the details. Choose the option to add file from Hexnode repository. You can click on the drop-down list next to the File Name option and choose the file that was uploaded to the repository.
  3. Click Done.

The shortcut can now be added to the Kiosk policy and deployed to the device. Navigate to Kiosk Lockdown-> Android Kiosk Lockdown-> Single App/ Multi-App, click on the + icon and select the file shortcut. Associate targets and save the policy. The PDF file will now appear on the kiosk screen.
