Hi wnegley,

Welcome to Focal Point.

While we wait to see if others reply to your specific question you will find docuemtation on Technical Support Center.

Click on the Technical Content Library link. Based on your version of the product you can find all the documents. A list of links will open on the left that will expand once you
click on the "+".

Hope that helps.

Thank you for participating in the Focal Point Forum.

Kindest regards,
