indoor potty training an already outdoor trained Chi

I just adopted my furbaby, my first Chi. I was told Baby is about 2 years old and I know she is housebroke, to go outside. However, I live in an upstairs apartment so I am trying to train her to use a puppy pad. Any ideas on how to make this easy on both of us would be wonderful. Thanks!
