Create a new library

  • Updated


Libraries contain unique configurations of permissions and settings and can be applied to any number of engagements. When your team creates an engagement, MindBridge applies the library's configuration as it exists at that point in time* to the new engagement.

Creating custom libraries streamlines and standardizes your firm's engagements and analyses across MindBridge.

Learn how to create a new library below.

*Note: Major changes to library settings (such as adjustments to custom risk scores or control points) made after applying a library to an engagement will not be reflected in the given engagement — to use new settings, you must create a new engagement. Learn more about what to expect when making changes to library settings, and how to manage your libraries.

Go to the Libraries tab

  1. Select Admin ( Admin_icon.svg ) near the bottom of the MindBridge sidebar. You will go to the Admin settings.
  2. Go to the Libraries tab. You will see a list of all libraries available in your tenant.
Note: You must be an App Admin to access Admin settings and create a new library.

Create a new library

Libraries can be selected for use by anyone on your team when they create new engagements.

  1. Select Create library in the top right of the Libraries page. A form window appears. 
  2. Enter the Library name.
  3. Select a Base library or import a library configuration file.
    All new libraries must be created based on an existing library. When you select a base library, its settings and permissions (as well as analysis configurations, ratios, filters, populations, segments, risk scores, risk ranges, and control points — varied by analysis typeat that point in time are copied over. Any future changes made to the base library will not be reflected in the new library.
  4. The Analysis types that the library can use are populated automatically, but you can add and remove analysis types as needed.
  5. Select the Account grouping structure the library will use.
  6. Add Industry tags by selecting an existing option from the menu, or create a new tag by entering it into the field. Learn about industry tags.
  7. Optionally, enter a Default delimiter if the datasets you expect to import contain a custom delimiter (for example, -|- ), otherwise, MindBridge will detect the default delimiter used in the imported dataset. Learn about delimiters.
  8. Select how risk scores should be displayed within MindBridge:
    • As percentages (default option), or
    • With High, Medium, and Low risk labels
      Note: If you want to use labels, graphs that use percentage-based scores will have alternate displays. If you want to use percentages, some graphs will continue to display labels.
  9. Use the checkboxes to determine the level of control users should have over the control points within each risk score.
    Note: Users have full control over risk scoring permissions by default.
    • **Control point selection: When selected, allows your team to add and remove control points within each risk score in the engagement settings. Learn how to add and remove control points from risk scores in the library and the engagement settings.
    • **Control point weight: When selected, allows your team to adjust the weight of control points within each risk score in the engagement settings. Learn about control point weights.
    • Control point settings: When selected, allows your team to adjust the individual control point settings (such as adding and removing keywords, setting a material value, etc.) within a risk score in the engagement settings.
    • Risk score and group settings: When selected, allows your team to disable risk scores and risk groups in an engagement.
  10. When you are satisfied, select Create library. You will return to the Libraries tab in the Admin settings, where the new library will be listed.

Select Cancel at any time to discard the new library and go back to the Libraries tab.

*Tip: If you are using a base library with a different account grouping, the checkbox to "Convert library settings for use with new account grouping" controls whether ratios, filters, and populations that reference the account grouping will be brought over.
**Note: If you deselect the boxes that allow control point selection and adjustment of control point weight, your teams will not be able to import risk scores when rolling forward or duplicating analyses, or when creating new engagements.
