Frequently Asked Questions

Because this is a generic template meant for any company, it is not pre-tagged. However, tagging for these templates is easy and can then be applied to new filings created from these templates.

Initial linking is set up for fields like the cover page, signature block, etc. Additional linking, if desired, will need additional link mapping. Keep in mind that these types of 8-Ks may not include significant data and tables, so you may not need to additional link mapping every time you use them.

With the resources available online, and especially if you've used the Workiva platform previously, you should be able to use this easily. However, your CSM is always nearby for support.
