How can I add an external link to erpnext v13's Desk?

Preferably without changing the source code of erpnext, this was easily achievable in erpnext v12 by adding an item of type Link in’s json, but there’s no such thing in erpnextv13

By “external link” I mean an icon on the side menu or a shortcut on the dashboard that takes you to another website. ie. when you click on it. A simple hyperlink functionality.

Same. This is an incredibly basic thing – just adding links/buttons to navigation menus. Is this not possible in version 13?
