Step 1: Add and configure a new communication plan

Since communication plan forms are organized within communication plans, we first have to create the plan that will 'store' the Tornado Warning form. We'll create a new communication plan named Environment Event Response.

To create the new communication plan:
  1. Log into xMatters and click the Developer tab (if you don't see the tab, you do not have the permissions necessary to design communication plans).
  2. On the Manage Communication Plans page, click Create Plan.
  3. In the Create a New Communication Plan dialog box, type Environment Event Response in the Name field.

  1. Click Create Plan.
  2. Click the Plan Disabled check box so that it displays a green check mark and the text changes to Plan Enabled.
