How to Add Activity Zone to a Custom Mode?

I've read the articles on this forum where Activity Zones are not working, and the "possible" solution being to create a Custom Mode, different than the standard "Armed" mode.
My problem is, when I go to Add Mode and through all the settings, I can't find where to select the Activity Zones that I created?



Can someone step me through this?
I do have a Smart Premier account.

It appears that the ability to choose which zones are active in a mode has been removed. Right now, if you have zones defined, they're all used.

Appears that way, but why wouldn't they 1) proactively inform customers of the feature removal, 2) place a notice on the configuration pages that it's not available anymore, and 3) remove (or disable) the Activity Zone feature as well?
Seems they need a better Customer Experience team to help make these decisions...
