Quality Control

Viewing and approving assessments in the app is the first step towards our feature-packed, collaborative quality assurance workflow.

Currently, the findings in QC are read-only, and for changes to be made, assessments must be Unsubmitted and returned to In-Progress.

Our next release will enable a validator to edit findings, add comments and notes throughout an assessment, and return to the assessor to primp and polish.

Review An Assessment
  1. Find the assessment you wish to QA and Approve, see Ready-for-QA,
  2. Press on the assessment,
  3. Navigate through the assessment by pressing on elements; field info, questions, actions, controls, repeatables to review the findings.

Unsubmit Assessment

If the quality of the assessment is not adequate or corrections need be made, return the assessment to In-Progess and have the assessor make the changes.

  1. Inside the assessment, go to the Overview,
  2. Press Unsubmit Assessment,
  3. You must provide a reason. Use the Reason field to provide feedback for the assessor. If required, the Reason field can accept extensive notes. You can type into the field or paste text from a separate document.
  4. By default, the assessor will receive an email notification to say the assessment has been unsubmitted. The email will include your Reason comments. You can choose not to send the email by unchecking the box: Notify Assessor.
  5. Press Unsubmit.

As part of document control, RiskBase holds the history of each assessment including whether it has been unapproved and reapproved. The history of an assessment can be viewed at

Approved assessments have a version number which appears on the cover and summary pages of its PDF report. This number refers to the number of times it has been approved.

Unapproving an assessment changes its status back to 'submitted'. Users with QC permissions will be able to modify the assessment in its submitted state.

A submitted assessment can be unsubmitted which changes its status to in progress. An in-progress assessment can be edited by the original author. Learn how to unsubmit an assessment.
