Taxonomy AnalyzerLast updated on 06/18/19
The Taxonomy Analyzer lets you browse, select, and bookmark taxonomy concepts. You can also see how other companies used those concepts, and, if appropriate, reuse the concepts as they did.
Note: If you have pop-up blockers enabled on your internet browser, you will need to add app.wdesk.com to the list of allowed sites to use this feature.
Opening the Taxonomy Analyzer
You can quickly open the XBRL Taxonomy Analyzer from the main Wdesk menu.

Using the Taxonomy Browser
You can also use the Taxonomy Analyzer to browse for concepts:

A view of the concept in the hierarchical taxonomy tree appears.

References lists authoritative resources for more information on a concept.
Bookmarks in the Taxonomy Analyzer

Selecting and Applying a Concept
When you find the concept you want to use to tag the selected fact:
- Click the Copy Concept button next to the concept in the Taxonomy Analyzer.
- Click Paste copied concept in the Detail Tagging window or Concept Search panel.
Note: If you copy a concept from a taxonomy different than that of your document, the Taxonomy Analyzer will automatically migrate it to the current taxonomy. Some concepts may be removed or deprecated from an older taxonomy, please call your CSM or Suppport if you need guidance.
