Risk ranges are customized scoring parameters that determine the minimum and maximum percentages for low, medium, and high risk levels, respectively.
Each risk range can be applied to your custom risk scores to help you set clear guidelines around how to handle entries within each risk level.
Learn how to manage risk ranges for your team in the library.
You must be an App Admin to view and manage risk ranges in the library.

Open the menu ( ) within the column header you want to pin, then select Pin Column and choose the pin location on the table: Left, Right or No Pin (default).
Create a risk range
You can create risk ranges in the library. Existing engagements using the library will not be impacted, but these new ranges will be available for use in new engagements as needed.
- Select Create risk range.
- Enter a unique name.
- Enter a description of the risk range to help your team understand its purpose (maximum 250 characters).
- If you want to remove a risk level from scoring entirely, deselect the associated checkbox.
For example, deselect Medium to remove it from this configuration, and only apply Low and High risk when scoring.
- Adjust the range of each desired risk level using one of the following methods:
- Use the slider: The slider marks the end of one risk level's range and the beginning of another. Move each slider left or right as desired. The percentage fields below will automatically update with your changes.
- Use the percentage fields: The percentage fields clearly indicate each risk level's range. Enter your desired percentage into the appropriate field.
- When you are satisfied, select Create.
The new risk range is added to the library with the status of Inactive* (i.e., not yet in use) and you will go back to the Risk ranges screen.
- If desired, apply the new risk range to a custom risk score.
Select Cancel any time to discard your changes and go back to the Risk ranges screen.
Risk ranges that exist within the library can be applied to your custom risk scores within the analysis settings of analyses using that library, regardless of whether the risk range has an Active or Inactive status in the library.

- Data table: Within the Entries view, use the filter to better align the results in MindBridge to your firm methodology.
