      • Select Funds from the Navigator Bar -or-
      • Select the Go to Funds page link listed on the Funds Card.
    2. Select the fund following the instructions in this article, How to search for a fund.
    3. Click the Designations tab.
      • Designations that have been previously added will be listed.
    4. From the action buttons on the Designations page, select the add action button.
      • A new line item will display.
        • Enter the name of the designation.
        • The designation will automatically be marked as Active, so if you want to make it inactive, you will have to edit the designation after you save it. 
        • If you decide not to add/save the new record, select the undo action button which will remove the line item.
    5. Click the save action button.
