Step #1: Name your Wave for internal purposes.

Step #2: You’ll need to choose if you want to send the wave to one "Account" or to a "Group".

Step #3: Decide whether you would like to use a templated message or craft a custom one.

Step #4: Decide when you want the message to go out. You may send it immediately or schedule it for later. 

Step #5: Hit the yellow "CREATE" button at the top right of your screen and watch the responses roll in!! If you are not ready to send it and want to see a preview of the message, you may save the message as a "Draft" instead. Volt Waves 5Pro Tip: You can schedule multiple messages at once to minimize your daily workload!
