Demystify XBRL Detailed Tagging with WebFilings University

July 20, 2012
We think that Wdesk provides the most efficient and trustworthy environment for creating an XBRL filing. But like any software application, it pays to learn how to use it. That's where course 2 comes in from WebFilings University. Rather than the help pages which cover one part of the process at a time, course 2 covers in detail the mechanical process for tagging and creating your XBRL filing. After completing this training session, students will be able to:
  • Initiate XBRL on a document table
  • Use XBRL tagging applications to detail tag within document tables and in narrative text
  • Set the properties of individual or groups of XBRL facts
  • Inspect, validate, and revise your XBRL tagging work
  • Generate an XBRL filing
Learn tagging at your own pace and on your schedule. WebFilings University courses are available virtually, allowing you to improve your skills as your calendar and workload allows. All courses are available online at You'll need a WebFilings user account and an authorization code for your WebFilings University class to access the courses.
