Can you be more specific as to the error you are receiving and/or how you are running the job? The Exception message or how you are running the job might help identify what the issue really is.

Ok, Timeout reached usually means that the element could not be clicked because it wasn’t on the screen or a popup message was in the way of clicking it. What you should do is place a Take Screenshot + Save Image action before the Click, and see what the screen looks like before it errors.
