Editing XBRL Prefix and Namespace DefaultsLast Updated: 11/09/15
Setting the Namespace and Prefix
Every project must have a namespace and prefix in its XBRL Properties. Wdesk provides you with defaults for these. You should only change the defaults if you change your website address. You do not need to change your prefix if your ticker symbol changes.
To edit these defaults, click Project Properties in the Projects tab.
Applying Your Changes
In the Project Properties window, click on the XBRL Settings tab. On this tab, you will see options for XBRL Prefix and XBRL Namespace with your current defaults shown below. Fill in the boxes with the appropriate prefix and namespace, and click Apply Changes.
