Risk Quick Search area allows users to search through the risk actions within the organisation and carry out any progress updates. You can access this from the navigation menu under Quick Search > Quick Risk Action Search.

Quick Risk Action Search

The Quick Risk Action Search area can be used to search for and locate any risk mitigation action you want within the system, regardless of the responsible officer. This is often used when needing to update a risk action on behalf of someone else (so long as you have the required security permissions), or just to find the details of a risk action within the system.

  • STEP 1: To access the 'Quick Risk Action Search' page, go to Quick Search > Quick Risk Action Search within the Navigation Menu.
    The quick risk action search page will then display risk actions in your system.

You can sort by any of the column headings by clicking the column headings. For example, clicking on the 'Last Change' column title will sort the items from oldest to newest.

You can also type in the text boxes under the headings. It is a key word search, meaning that by just entering a word or two, it will list all actions which include the specified words in their title.

You may also filter by Risk Category (defaults to show all) or Risk Status (defaults to show risk actions for Active risks only) by using the drop down lists. Once you have made a selection the page will refresh the filtered risk actions.

  • STEP 2: To update or view progress, select one or many items that you want to update by clicking the 'Select' box on the left, and then click on 'Risk Action Update'.

Clicking the 'Risk Action Update' button will take you to the Quick Risk Action Update page.

You can also navigate directly to the data entry screen for a particular item by clicking on the description hyperlink.

Quick Risk Action Update Page

You can access the Risk action update page through Quick Risk Action Search.

  • STEP 1: The following screen will be displayed for you to update the progress of your risk mitigation action.
  • STEP 2: Enter an explanatory comment about the progress of the item in the 'Progress' text box.
  • STEP 3: To track progress, choose a status description and enter a percent complete.
Note: There are specific business rules based on an action status in order for it to save successfully:
  • Setting a Status of ‘Not started’ will automatically set the percentage to 0%.
  • Setting a Status of 'ongoing' will automatically set the percentage to be blank (no progress to be determined).
  • Setting a Status of ‘Complete’ will automatically set the percentage complete to 100%. When the status is set to complete, completed date field will be enabled allowing you to enter the actual date of completion. This may be mandatory/optional depending on the configurations done by your Administrator.
  • You will not be able to modify the Percent Complete for ‘Not started’, ‘ongoing’ or ‘Completed’ Statuses. However, an ‘IN PROGRESS’ or ‘DEFERRED’ status will show a % complete that is editable. This field may have a number added between 1 and 100 only.
  • See article Risk Actions under section 'Risk Action Performance Indicators' for more details on the colour codes and calculations.
  • STEP 4: Click the 'Save' button to save your changes.
