enter image description here

I am trying to click on the link shown on the attachment but, no matter what I try, webdriver can't find the element. I tried these:

elem = driver.find_element_by_xpath("/html/body/div[1]/div/div/div[2]/div[2]/div/div[1]/div/div[1]/div/div[1]/div[2]/div/div/table/tbody/tr/td[1]/div/a").click()

elem = driver.find_element_by_xpath("//*[text()='P0005 - ORP TEST Dev Team 4 Mateusz']").click()

elem = driver.find_element_by_link_text("P0005 - ORP TEST Dev Team 4 Mateusz").click()

    What is the exact error? Do you wait for the element/page to load? Your selectors look ok. Sep 10, 2020 at 7:44
  • selenium.common.exceptions.NoSuchElementException: Message: no such element: Unable to locate element: {"method":"link text","selector":"P0005 - ORP TEST Dev Team 4 Mateusz"} (Session info: chrome=85.0.4183.83)
