Using ArcGIS Online To Store Linked Documents

ArcGIS Online (subscription account) now offers the ability to store certain non-spatial document types (PDF, JPG, TIF, etc) directly in the ArcGIS Online cloud.  I'd like to use this feature to store documents (PDFs) that I use as linked documents in Map Notes feature pop-ups in my web maps.  Unfortunately it appears that ArcGIS Online does not generate a URL for these documents once they are uploaded so I can't add them as a linked document.

Is there a work-around for this limitation?  I need to provide these linked documents to customers outside our domain and having them accessed directly from our ArcGIS Online site is an ideal solution.

Thanks in advance!
