Execs are expected to keep tabs on risks to the business. This means, if you are an audit executive, you need to know the status of open audit mitigation plans. If you’re an Onspring user, that report already comes with Onspring’s out-of-the-box audit solution, so it’s readily at your fingertips.
But what if you want to see if there are bottlenecks in the process? Or trends in findings?
That’s when live report filtering comes in. You can filter reports directly from your audit dashboard to get further particular information—without asking your admin to filter for you.
Sticking with our open mitigations example, if you want to filter findings to see any that have implications to financial regulations, you can filter for that information directly within the report you’re viewing.
In this Onspring screenshot below, we see open audit mitigation plans by owner and status. Using the report filters, we can distill any open mitigation plans with findings tied to financial regulations like SOX control caps or PCI coverage gaps.
Here’s another example for auditors: Let’s say you want to understand how long your mitigation plans have been open and if there are trends among individuals managing those plans or their findings. Report filters can dig into outstanding plans by date or within a specific timeframe, like this month or last quarter.
You can further filter that report to see to whom those outstanding plans in the last quarter are assigned or what findings are associated with a plan. This means that right from the dashboard, you can dig into trending to reveal potential problems and to address them at the root level.
