Are you new to Merrill Bridge or just getting started? Find answers to frequently asked questions about our industry-leading, secure SaaS solution.
Yes. Merrill Bridge does provide that functionality, and the initial release improves upon other products in the market by making the creation and tracking of those links much more intuitive.
Yes, Merrill Bridge allows you to continue working in Microsoft® Word, the document format you routinely use for editing. The document-editing feature is a robust editor where the user can even build an entire Section from a blank document. Editing content does not disturb XBRL content in Merrill Bridge. Tags are editable and extensible.
No. Merrill Bridge does not have a storage limit.
Experience shows that most customers will begin the transition immediately following filing of their 10-Q/10-K. However, the transition can begin at almost any time.
Not at all. The transition back and forth between Merrill Bridge and full service is virtually seamless. Our clients have the control and flexibility to choose if—and when—they want to take on self-service. Our clients have the peace of mind of knowing that our services team will guide them through the self-service process, advise and consult with them. We can take over their workload at any time upon request, whether to help with simple edits or complex XBRL mapping.
For a checked out Section file, the user can select “Save Section File” or “Save & Check-in the Section.” The former action will save the file as work in progress, while the latter will release the file.
Since you're working in a Merrill Bridge-enhanced version of Microsoft® Word, you can continue to use most of the native functions of Word as you have always used them—including “Track Changes.” Merrill Bridge also allows you to save a version of your document to your local environment as a milestone, using any naming convention you establish. With Merrill Bridge, only users given rights to your folio will be able to see your tracked comments.
Tables are not embedded in Merrill Bridge. However, when Track Changes is turned on, changes made within a table will be marked.
Yes—this is a specific strength of the Merrill Bridge platform. When updating an existing table, all links to multiple occurrences of the same data point are maintained so that updating in one place updates everywhere. Where new columns or rows are added, linking is maintained throughout those changes.
Yes. Using the power of Microsoft® Word, users will be able to view previous versions of the documents that have been saved to their local environment. They will also be able to completely revert to an older version of their document. If you forget to save a version, it's not a problem. Merrill Bridge's customer support can provide an earlier saved version.
Yes. Since you're using a Merrill Bridge-enhanced version of Microsoft® Word, you can view your work in all of the existing formats, including multipage across two screens. In addition, the functional tools added by Merrill Bridge can be displayed within the document screen—or "popped out" and moved to a second screen to allow for a larger working area.
