Creating or updating a Command

Creating or updating an Command uses the same form.

You can simply create a new Command by selecting 'Add Command' from the left hand navigation. To edit any details go to the Command and click the Update button that will appear in the top right hand corner. 

Before you start:

Before you start the creation of a new Command please make sure you have:

  • A Location and Asset set up to connect your Command to
  • You have decided to use either a pre-defined Command Type or you've set up a custom Command Type. 


Give your Command a name. Keep it unique so it will be easily recognisable in future to yourself and your wider team. 


A description should include any key information about the Command such as use, management and condition. Try to include information that will make it easier for others to understand the Command's purpose.
