Changing the way we work with Ideas, thus updating the status of your idea in line with the new process. New process works as follows:

1. When you post a new idea that we consider valid, we will label it 'Open to vote for', so that it can be shared with other users and start gathering votes
2. Ideas that are older than a year that we haven't gotten around to implement and that have not gathered enough votes will be archived.
3. We keep some older ideas that we think are in line with something we are planning otherwise or that have gathered enough votes.
4. If there are duplication of ideas, we may archive one of them and keep another which can continue to gather votes.
5. Ideas that we are planning to implement will be moved into the category 'Accepted'

Dear Pim,

I absolutely agree! As an organisation using PRINCE2 methodologies, we maintain Risk Logs offline in Excel, and have to share / consolidate them as we run through a bid and project.

I have tied to use PP's Issues tool, but it's clumsy.

The fields we use in-house, and which we'd like to see in a PP Risk management tool are:

  • Reference Number
  • Date Raised
  • Raised by (name)
  • Subject (brief)
  • Detail of Risk
  • Likelihood of Risk Occurring (rate 1 to 5)
  • Impact if Risk Occurs (rate 1 to 5)
  • Proposed Mitigation
  • Current Status (e.g. New / Under Review / Mitigated / Cleared / Cancelled)
  • Reviewed by (name)
  • Review Date
  • Comments

It would be very valuable to have version control / an audit trail as well.

Cheers, Paul
