Rolling Forward XBRL Dates

next generation

When using documents in multiple filings throughout the year, you need to roll forward XBRL dates to match the current reporting period. The next generation of Wdesk changes the way you roll forward XBRL dates. Now, simply select the new period in the Fiscal Calendar for the XBRL Profile the document uses and Wdesk automatically updates the fiscal dates for all facts.

Example of Rolling Forward XBRL Dates

The following example shows four XBRL dates, each tagged with a different date type. When you change the period from Q3 to Q4 in the fiscal calendar, the XBRL dates that need to change automatically update to the newly selected period.
