Adding Risk Data via User Interface

Risk - Core Data

If you are adding a Risk for the first time into Gatekeeper then it is important to understand the core data that is stored against a Risk. It is also possible to add custom data against a Risk, and this article discusses this in more depth. 

To view the data stored against a Risk, the simplest way to see this information is to visit the Bulk Import page. From the Risk Register select Add / Import Risk:

On the following page, scroll to the end and expand the Field by Field Import Rules section:

This will provide a summary of the data included. Note, any Custom fields will be dynamically added to this area.

Core Data Summary

The following fields are regarded as core, those with an asterix are mandatory:

Risk Name*

This is a title, or short description of the risk

Risk Type*

This helps categorise the risk - the list can be customised. 


Open, Closed or Accepted


This is the Supplier with whom the Risk is associated. The Supplier should exist within Gatekeeper before adding the risk. 


The given probability the risk will occur on a scale of Low, Minor, Moderate, Significant or High


The given impact if the risk occurs on a scale of Low, Minor, Moderate, Significant or High


Who is responsible for the Risk. They should be a Gatekeeper User. 

Due Date

The date by which the risk is due to be closed, for example. 


Any additional commentary that may be useful to store against the risk.

Adding Data

Risk data can be added, via the user interface, from two areas within Gatekeeper.

Firstly from the Risk Register:

Secondly, from the Supplier record:

Both options shall then take you to the following page (note, if added via the Supplier record you do not need to select the relevant Supplier):

The required inputs should be populated and the record saved. This will then be available both within the Risk Register and within the risk tab of the relevant Supplier.

Please note. Any custom fields may be added to this data input as standard.
