We have multiple PDF files on our site. I edited one and uploaded the new version to the server, but clients report that the old file is still showing, even though I cleared the magento cache after uploading the new file.

I thought clearing the magento cache will tell all clients to clear their cache and thus download the new file, but this is not the case.

I know I could parameterize the filename to force the browser to load it, e.g. change info.pdf to info.pdf?05092018 in the CMS code. But then I always have to change the filename in the CMS code which costs time.

Is there a way to deal with this without having to tell users to clear their browser cache or without having to parameterize the file in the CMS code?
