Risk Diagram Sidebar

The Risk diagram utilizes the left sidebar when a block contains a large number of risks that cannot be displayed individually. Instead of showing each risk, a number is displayed to indicate the total number of risks within that block. This feature is activated when the block has 10 or more risks.
