After generating XBRL, you can use the the Wdesk XBRL Viewer to open the filing document in an HTML layout for an in-depth review. You can easily navigate through the document sections in the HTML layout or export it for review. This option simplifies the tick-and-tie process and serves as basis for the Wdesk XBRL blackline feature.
Accessing the XBRL Viewer Report
To access the Wdesk XBRL Viewer, generate XBRL for your project. From the Projects panel on the right, select the XBRL tab and click Wdesk XBRL Viewer for the revision you want to review.
The report opens in a separate tab in your browser.
Reviewing Facts Using the Legend
The Wdesk XBRL Viewer highlights your XBRL facts within the regular structure of your document. Refer to the Legend in the upper left to understand the different highlight colors.
For more information about warnings and errors, see the Verifying Validation Messages and Fixing Common Errors articles.
The Wdesk XBRL Viewer highlights potentially untagged values in the document with purple. Make sure you review these potentially untagged facts to determine if you need to tag them.
Use the View Options in the panel on the left to control which details to see for each fact. The View Options are the same as Review Display options in the Wdesk editor.
For example, if you select Balance Type, the viewer displays credit or debit for values.
