  2. Click New or press CTRL+N to create a new coverage group.

  3. Enter information that identifies the coverage group and then select the work-days calendar to use.

  4. On the tabs that remain, enter the detailed settings that are used to calculate requirements for the items that are linked to the coverage group.
