This iView allows you to create a new bucket. Items can be created only in a bucket that is at the lowest level of the bucket hierarchy.

You navigate to this iView by choosing Portfolio Management Administration. Then choose Portfolio Structure of Buckets. Choose Create New or, in the navigation panel, under Actions, choose Create New Bucket.

The following views open in sequence (both are named Create New Bucket).


       1.      A bucket selection screen appears, in which you can select the parent bucket under which the new bucket is to be created. Alternatively, you can create the new bucket directly under the top level of the portfolio, without selecting a parent bucket object. You either select the indicator Select Parent Manually and select a parent bucket, or you set the indicator Create Directly Under Portfolio. Click Next.

       2.      The Create New Bucket screen displays trays that you can expand by clicking each header, or expand collectively, by clicking the arrow in the upper right of the screen. The trays are as follows:
