Before creating a new site, you should use the following link to view our article How to install the Installer Tool Software and select the version of the site you want to work on.

Here we'll show you how to name your site under Project Name, where you should also create an Installer Password and set the Time Zone.
Now you need to select the system type and press OK, then you’ll be taken to the Topology tab which will show the current system layout. As you can see in the example provided, 1 stair and 1 floor has been added automatically (Floor010101).

Next, you’ll need to click the Project button near the top of your screen and then click on the Site. Just make sure you fill in all the fields under Site before continuing.
At this point you should take a moment to save your project. Within the Project tab, simply click Save on the left-hand side.
Finally, head into the settings under the Site tab where you need to update three of the system parameters (Time Zone, Addressing Type, Network Settings) at this point. Then, after making the required changes to the three system parameters, click Apply.
