How do I tag a period duration of weeks?

    Hi Chelsea!

    You are correct, under the current ISO Duration tagging limits, the ability to tag in weeks is not an option. In this case, you'd need to either tag it as the converted years, months or days. I'll also add that both FASB and SEC discussions have indicated this separate tagging to not be required at Level 4, since the calendar dates applied to all other Level 4 data already indicate the yearly or quarterly period durations. As a result, its our best practice to NOT tag this value.

    That being said, we'd encourage you to confirm with your own counsel and if they feel it should be tagged, the above would be correct, i.e. it would need to be tagged as year(s), months or day. This could be done in a non-printing section as well.

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions for me, or need anything else. Thanks, and stay awesome!
