Downloadable files in a repeating group

Hi, Loving bubble by the way
A newbie question though, I want users to upload files and photos and have created a users list of things to enable this.
I also created a repeating group to display what they have uploaded but I just get text of the file.
I want the user to be able to preview and download what they previously uploaded.
How can I upload a file correctly so that a user can click on it at a later date in the repeating group and view it again?
Secondly is the ability to preview or download the file. Is this separate functionality?
Thanks for your help

To download the file, have a link in the repeating group that points to an external URL. Set the external URL to current cell’s file.

Previewing is trickier. If you share a link to the editor, we can take a look at what you’ve done so far and try to help.

Thanks for the prompt reply, I used the idea of the external URL.
It works but it also means that I have to keep the file stored elsewhere also,
My end goal here is to digitize my life, I want to be able to upload files and take pictures from my phone, add some text as to their context and then review them as I need. e.g my car insurance details,
In some cases it would be nice to preview the file quickly or in some cases I would need to download it.Any ideas you have would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks again , link to my app is below

Looks like your app is set to private, so I can’t see the editor unfortunately. I’m not sure I understand what you mean by having files stored elsewhere. When you upload them to Bubble, a link gets generated. This is where the file lives, and you can just reference this link within the app.
