- Create a parcel record for the parcel division.
The parcel record is set as active in the map. The Created By Record field of new parcel features is populated with the GlobalID of the active record.
In the Parcel split: area description task, the Create Record pane is embedded in the Tasks pane and opens automatically in the first step.
