3. Use the search box to get the map of the area that you wish to map. You can zoom in and out for a better view.

5. Once the area is selected, click on "Proceed". You will be asked to enter a name for that area and any additional notes.
6. After you click on "Proceed" the system will start mapping each street.
If the area selected is huge, it might take a couple of minutes for the area to be mapped.
7. Once the area is mapped, it will be automatically shown under "Active Areas".

After publishing it, members will be able to access it using the ChurchTalk app.
