Pivots for newb using NT 6.5

Can someone please help me out? I have been searching for hours to try and set up my pivots indicator in NT 6.5 and I'm doing something wrong but, can't figure out what.

I'm wanting to display with a line, the prev day high and the prev day low.

I assume that I have to enter something in the user defined values but, I have no idea what.

ALSO, I'm wanting to set this up primarily for ES, do I need to be concerned about my session time settings? Right now I have them set to begin at 3:30 and end at 3:15.

I have searched the NT support forum but, there doesn't seem to be a "PIVOTS 101"

If anyone could help me out, I would GREATLY appreciate and and will be forever grateful

Or even just point me to somewhere that I could figure it out myself, I don't mind doing the work

this indicator will display 2 lines for prev day high and low, it doesn't do any thing else.

Thanks cory, of course by Murphy's Law, as soon as I posted, I figured it out

Can anyone chime in with the session timing situation? Do I have it right at 3:30 start, 3:15 end for the ES?

make sure your chart shows the time and date that you want the indicator to find the high and the low. The indicator can not calculate on the data that is not there. if you are in doubt just use the default 24hr chart.
