The goal is to be able to change a control plan without the need to use Screens, by using the tool acsAddCallPlan from the command line.

In certain cases, the access to Screens can be slow due to a bad connection specially when using VPN. For this reason, customer might want to be able to save a new version (previously prepared and exported via Control Plan Editor) of a certain control plan, without having to use the Control Plan Editor in Screens.
