  • You can create areas anywhere in the area view hierarchy.

  2. Click a partition () or an area entity () you want to create the new area under.
  3. Click Add an entity () > Area.
  4. Type a name for the area, and press ENTER.

After you finish

If you are defining an area for access control, then secure the area.
