The steps to create a parked item are similar to those to create a new item

Click the Create a Parked Item button.

Unlike creating a new item, the first step of creating a parked item is to select the Item type.  Since it is going to be parked until assigned to a meeting, there is no need to select a meeting at this time.

Notice that the form to add parked items does not include region placement. Since it is not included in a meeting yet, there are no agenda regions to choose.

Click the Add Agenda Item button.

Just like with creating a new item, the success message is displayed and the Sections tab is selected in the edit item screen. From this point forward, all steps of creating and editing a parked item are the same as the steps for a new item.
