Step 3. Click the Service or GAP pop-up buttons in the center column of the Desking page.


 Step 4. A pop-up will open containing a Coverages card and a Credit Insurance card. 

Step 5. To add a service contract, warranty, maintenance contract, or GAP insurance, click the options button next to the Provider field in the respective line of the Coverages Card. Select the provider from the drop-down list.
