Yes. Click the Risks tab > Settings > Risk Categories. The Risk Outcomes and Weights dialog box opens:


To add a risk category, click in an empty row under the existing risk categories and type in a category name.


This will add a risk category, which is also referred to as a risk outcome in the documentation. However, the system has flexibility to add more than a single impact or outcome type for each category. So under the Risk Category, you must add at least one outcome type. This outcome type is a child of the risk category and must be indented to show this relationship (similar to summary and subtasks).
