This daylong workshop will take participants from the fundamentals of what is required within the scope of XBRL through the steps toward ensuring data quality beyond the initial tagging. Participants will learn how to use the US GAAP Taxonomy, the overall XBRL project life cycle, and how to properly prepare for it. Attendees will become familiar with mapping and disclosures modeling, concept vs. dimension use, and locating or creating the concepts needed. In addition, creating XBRL facts, handling fact properties correctly, resolving conflicts, and ensuring a proper taxonomy outline as part of the tagging will be addressed.

  • A key aspect of this conference is that it's more than just the Wdesk product. People who are light users can come and learn about industry trends, SEC developments, etc.
