Within Incident Management, Plays are the automations that run when a channel is started.
You can configure your play to automatically add modules such as Task Boards and Status Boards to your channel when you start it. You can also build out data in collections and choose what you want available in a play by selecting those items.
You can create as many plays as you need. You will also have the option to start a blank play if what you are looking for does not exist when opening a new incident. Here's some examples you could create in your account

Admin Area

Each play will be configured in the Admin Area to specify which modules should be turned on and what data from the collections should be available.


Collections are used to pre-load data into a Play. For example you might have a Play called 'Tropical Storm' and you could enter all the county storm shelters into the collections in advance. You can then add these collections and a status board of 'Shelters' to your 'Tropical Storm' play and they will appear in the channel every time you start a 'Tropical Storm' play.
