Applying Concepts and Dates

Tagging a fact requires both a concept and a date, at a minimum.

To apply a concept or a date to a fact:

Open the document, click the XBRL tab, and make sure Show XBRL is on.
Choose an XBRL profile if one is not already applied.
Click the XBRL Outline tab and enable Auto-Add to Outline if you want to automatically add concepts to the XBRL outline. You’ll be asked to either add the concept to a current XBRL outline section in your document or create a new one.
Select the cell or text you want for the fact. To tag more than one fact at a time, select multiple cells.
Click Add Fact on the XBRL toolbar or from the right-click menu.
Choose a concept:
  • If the concept is already in the XBRL outline, drag it from the XBRL outline to the Add Concept field in the Fact Details panel.
  • If selecting a new concept from the taxonomy, click Add Concept in the Fact Details panel. Then find and Apply the concept.
