Once you have created an event you need to create functional areas, or areas of responsibility, in which you will be able to assign to your team members and vendors. There are two methods for adding and importing functional areas.

Once you are in the Organizational Chart, hover the cursor over the Functional Area box that is labeled Event Director Event Director.
Then, click on the in the lower right hand margin of the event director box.
A dialog box will the appear. You must enter a Name for the functional area. You can optionally add a team member, write a description, and allow map administration for the functional area. You do not have to add a contact for the functional area at this time you can do so in later steps.
Method 2: From the Event Details Page
Start by selecting the event from the list of events on the dashboard. Next, click on the Event Logo or Name directly above the Location and module bugs.
This will take you to the Event Details Page. From here you can create new functional areas or import functional areas. To add a new functional area click on located above the Functional Area List, this will open the same dialog box as in Method 1.
To import one or multiple functional areas click on located beside the add functional area button.
Choose whether to import functional areas from a master list or from a past event at the top of the dialog box. Select the desired functional areas to import by checking them from the list.
After selecting the functional areas from the list click on to import the selection into the Event.
Note: If you are importing functional areas from a past event you have the option to import the contacts the were assigned to that functional area in the past event.
