Step 1. Log in to your Umbraco 8 back office. 

Step 2. Click Settings and scroll down to Templating, Then Right click on Partial Views(or click the 3 dots to the right of the text when you hover). and then click "New Empty Partial View". 

Step 3. Now Populate with your Partial View with what ever code you would like. and Click "Save and Publish".

Step 4. Next you need to render your new partial view to your Template (This can be done 2 ways). Go to the template you would like to edit either in Umbraco 8 back office of in your Visual Studio files and type the following code where you would like your Partial View Displayed.
