What We Announced via a Disclosure Management Statement of Direction

Note: You can still use Narrative Reporting report packages to create  your financial statements and narratives as part of the disclosure  process.


Narrative Reporting Report Packages

Report Package – New Doclet Versioning Optimization (21.03)

  • The Doclet versioning process has been updated to minimize the impact of repetitive  automated check-ins.
  • Previously, any system update to a Doclet file, like updating variable values or embedded content,  resulted in a new Doclet version being generated.
  • Now the system will only generate a new Doclet version on an automated update if the prior version was  created by a user initiated check in.
  • Repetitive automated check-ins will be fully audited but will no longer cause new versions to be  generated.
  • This optimization improves the retention of user updated Doclet versions.  Allowing users to better revert back to a prior version they uploaded to the  Doclet.
