    Press the Save and return to module button.

  4. Back in the module site, press Add new tab.

  5. You will be taken to the Add new tab page. Enter a title within Tab title, whatever appears here will appear as the heading of the tab.

    You can adjust the position of the tab from the Tab position dropdown menu.
