What is the goal of the risks tab in the Project app?
It is easy to keep track of the risks of a project in the risks tab in the Project app of Fortes Change Cloud. You can decide per project what information to store with respect to the risks of a project. Think, for example, of the status, the chance and impact, the owner of the date on which a risk is created. Furthermore, the list of risks can be exported to a spreadsheet program or be printed, so it can be shared with people that don’t have access to the project.
How do I use the risks tab?
- Decide which information you want to document and add the information as columns . You do this by clicking
COLUMNSand selecting the desired columns. You could, for example, choose to add the column Last edited on to display the date a risk was last edited. Examples of frequently used columns are:
- Status indicates if a risk is solved, or not.
- Chance indicates the possibility that the risk occurs.
- Impact indicates the impact of a risk, if it were to occur.
- Owner enables the possibility to appoint a person to an issue.
- Add a risk by clicking
+. Enter a description and fill in the remaining columns.
- If needed, use a filter to filter the risks. A list of risks can grow fast, which makes it hard to maintain a clear overview. You could, for example, set filters to show the risks that have the highest possibility. You could also opt to use a view if you want to re-use a filter or set of filters.
Export the risks to a spreadsheet program to share them or to send them to people that don’t have access to Fortes Change Cloud. You can also print the risks directly!
