Editing XBRL Outline Subsections

Customizing the Outline

A number of requirements pertain to the organization of the XBRL Outline. Most of the time, Wdesk manages these requirements for you. However, in some cases, you might want to customize the outline. This article describes how you can modify a number of the XBRL outline subsection attributes.

For more information about the requirements of the XBRL outline, see the EDGAR Filer Manual 6.7.12.

Modifying Outline Section Attributes

In Wdesk, display the XBRL Outline, right-click a section you want to customize, and choose Edit.

In the XBRL Outline Subsection Attributes dialog box, specify the appropriate settings for this subsection.

A. Outline Section Type reflects the type of section in your financial report: Disclosure, Statement, or Document. Wdesk uses this setting for determining the Table of Contents sort code. Some applications, such as the SEC Viewer, also rely on the section type as part of determining the order of presentation.

B. Outline Subsection Type includes Statement Details or DEI, Parentheticals, and Levels 1–4 of the Explicit Tagging Levels. These tagging levels are defined in the EDGAR Filer Manual (vol. II, version 16) 6.6.16, 6.6.19, 6.6.20, and 6.6.22. Some applications, such as the SEC Viewer, rely on the subsection type as part of determining presentation order.

C. Table of Contents Sort Code presents the alphanumeric value of the sort code generated by Wdesk. This value is based on what you set for Outline Section Type and Outline Subsection Type. For details about how this value is determined, see the EDGAR Filer Manual 6.7.12.

D. User Editable Sort Code allows you to specify the order within the levels 1, 3, and 4.

E. Table of Contents Label lets you specify how the subsection name appears in an XBRL viewing program. For example, a table of contents caption in the SEC Viewer.

F. Section Name shows the current parent of the selected subsection. To move the subsection to a different location in the XBRL Outline, select the change section check box and type the exact name of the destination section.

G. Subsection Name shows the current name of the selected subsection. This is created according to requirements defined in the EDGAR Filer Manual. If you think you might need to change this, contact your Customer Success Manager for assistance.

H. Label Preview shows the generated label for the subsection according to your settings for Table of Contents Label above.

I. Suppress in Filing excludes the XBRL Outline subsection from the filing documents. However, it does not exclude facts from the XBRL instance filing documents. In order to appropriately remove the facts from the XBRL instance filing documents, update the document and any non-printing/phantom sections to hide or remove all facts associated with the suppressed outline section.
