RiskTree allows you to perform certain functions on multiples nodes at once. This can save time if you are needing to perform the same action (e.g., adding tags, or adding a note) on multiple nodes.

Selecting and deselecting nodes

The thumbtack icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the node menu is used to select and deselect nodes. Selected nodes will show a solid icon, and will have a thick coloured border.

Auto recover helps to protect your work in RiskTree Designer against a browser crash or other failure. It saves your work continuously into a recovery file in the browser storage. In the event of a failure, when you restart RiskTree and log in, you will see a new option on the screen, as a red button:

Clicking this button should restore your RiskTree to where you were before the crash.

When you are working in Designer, Auto Recover is enabled and disabled by a switch in the top-right corner of the window.


Just click on the switch to turn Auto Recover on or off.

Security and Auto Recover

Auto Recover stores data in the browser storage which persists even after the browser is closed. This means that your RiskTree data could be obtained by a subsequent user of the computer if you do not log out of RiskTree (for example, if the browser crashes and you are not the next person to use it). If your RiskTree is sensitive and you are using a shared computer, you are advised to switch Auto Recover off.
