Hi Alex. Thanks.

I have tried to look at the activities available to me via "Create and activity" however I do not see a Forward to URL option as specified in this link you shared. 

https://frontlinecloud.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/208115553-Connecting-to-another-web-service-creating-a-Forward-to-URL-Activity

Am I missing something? If I can get this done. My project can officially start. Any advice would be appreciated.
