Create a broadcast group

As part of an emergency preparedness program, we want to be able to send notifications to all employees based on the West Coast of the United States whenever a natural disaster affects the area.

We want to send notifications to all group members immediately, regardless of how other members respond to the notification. To do this, we use the broadcast group type.

To ensure that this broadcast group stays current as more users are added to xMatters, we'll use dynamic teams to populate the group membership. Dynamic teams are automatically generated to include members that match specified criteria. In this case, we'll add dynamic teams that select recipients based on their site. This ensures that new xMatters users will be included in the group as long as they are assigned to an appropriate site.

We will restrict who can access and notify this group so that low-permission users cannot send notifications to this group and that only certain high-permission users have permission to modify it.
