SPOTLIGHT - How do I create band or "donut" trade areas?

Band or "donut" trade areas can be created in SPOTLIGHT.

Instead of creating a ring trade area based on a specific distance, you can create a band of a specified distance.

For example, if you wish to create a band from 5 to 6 miles, you would enter "5-6" (without the quotes) in the Sizes box.

You can create multiple bands as well.

Please see the image below to learn how this would look when created in SPOTLIGHT. 

This can also be created using Drive Time areas (e.g., from 10 to 20 minutes) but the areas can become quite complex and can take much longer to draw on the map.
