  3. In the Add New Panel dialog box, select the Type of panel and follow the appropriate hyperlink below to create the desired panel template:
The panel template is available (on the Dashboard, under Choose Panels) for you use to create new panels. Note that you can edit the settings for this template panel at anytime by clicking the Edit button under the Action column of the template panel row you want to edit.
