    Can you try something like this (see Page Object),

    function Example()
    {
    	Browsers.Item(btEdge).Run("http://smartbear.com/");
    	var page = Sys.Browser(btEdge).Page("*");
    	page.FindElement("//a[.='Apply for a permit']").Click();
    }

    Change the URL; use either Find() or FindElement().

     

    Note, I only suggested the record actions, so that you can see the script that TC generates - to see the XPath query.
