How do I Create, Edit, and Delete a Risk Meter?

  5. In the Child Risk Meter view, add any additional filters and then click Save Child.
  6. In the Create Child Group pop-up window, enter a name and select any roles.
  7. Click Create Child.

Creating a descendant inherits all the search terms from the parent and so you only need to add new search terms to the original search. For more information, see Getting Started with Hierarchical Risk Meters.
