If using the mobile app, you will click the "Park" icon at the bottom of the screen or "Start Parking" if you are on a computer. You can manually enter the zone number or use the map feature to select the zone.

The parking space information is located on the ParkMobile sticker. This sticker is placed on the front of the meter on the lower portion and it should look similar to the image below.
