Open the Project Indicators window using one of the methods outlined here, then select the 'Risk' page.


Configure > Reference Data > Project Types > Project Indicators : Risk

  • You can transport risk types between models, using the 'Configure > Model > Transfer > Export Reference Data' and 'Import Reference Data' ribbon options
