Is it possible to have Butler Board button open a new window to a specified URL when clicked?

The question says it all: I need to open an external URL when a user clicks a board button.

If not, is there another way to achieve this same goal, i.e. when a user clicks a board button it launches a new window to a URL?

@Darren Smith based on what I have worked on so far (see profile), this is what I can share on this subject :

1. There is Butler Http Request - GET, POST, PUT but this does not open a window. Depending on the endpoint it can accept a payload and you can return values as variables {httpresponse.keyname}. You can put this as part of a board button/.

2. Any link embed in description in this format ['name']{'http...'} or a url in a custom field will open a window to the URL

3. A custom power up that creates a board button will open a new window (modal)

Depending on your specific requirement, one of the above might be what you are looking for. I find (1) to be the most useful and easy to implement since I can get a response from the endpoint.

Thanks! We'll explore your suggestions.
