Creating a Risk Register Report

Simulation Master Tutorials > Creating a Risk Register

A risk register report is how data from the risk register is communicated and shared with others.  The risk register report tool allows for filtering of entries, and data fields.

Creating the Report

To create a risk register report, click the Risk Register Report button on the Simulation Master ribbon.

Select the risk register from the drop-down box.

The are two pages on the form, one for filtering entries, and one for what data fields to show.  We'll start with entry options.  When the risk register is selected, all categories and owners are shown in the list boxes.

We can select what entries to include in the report based on type, status, category, and owner.  Some risks may not yet have an impact.  You can choose whether to include or exclude these risks as well.

For the example, we'll include everything.

If we click on the Field Options tab, the following will appear.

Any field that is checked will be included in the report.  You can uncheck fields that you don't want to show in the report to reduce clutter.

For the example, we'll include everything.

Click the Create Report button to generate the report.

Note that the report also includes inherent and residual risk scores (probability X impact).

Saving Field Settings

Earlier we showed the Field Options page which is where we choose which data fields to include in the report.  If you're repeatedly creating reports with the same data fields, you can save the field settings in the risk register sheet.

The next time the risk register is selected, the field settings will be pre-checked.

For example, let's open the report form and click on the Field Options tab.

The default is for all fields to be checked.  Let's say we don't want to include everything, so we'll uncheck some of the fields.

When the correct fields are checked, click the Save Settings button.  The next time the risk register is selected, the fields will be pre-checked.
