Tip Of The Month – Viewing The History Of An Item

Did You Know

You can differentiate between item-specific information and unit/process/template information in the following item capture forms: Objective, Risk, Contributing Factor and Control.This means that you can add item-specific data which will remain constant, no matter where the object is applied. If changes are made to the risk itself, these changes will be carried out wherever the item is applied.
You can also add unit-specific data to the item when it is applied to different units, or to a process or template.
