Hi All..


I try to making some sales forecasting on my charts and found there's "Forecast" function. Unfortunately it's disable, and I don't know how to make it on.

Here I have the year and the summary of my sales data.

Is there any other requirement to enable it?

Or is there any tutorial or how to documentation for using that function?

Any suggestion will very welcome.

Thank you.


Regards.

Rani

Hi Rani,


I hope all is well,


Function fields in the Chart Builder allow you to create a new field available to the chart, which is based on a report field with a selected function applied to it.

These fields will become available once required field components have been added to the chart.


The above was grabbed from our Wiki, see this link: http://wiki.yellowfin.com.au/display/USER73/Chart+Functions#ChartFunctions-Forecast


Going forward within our SKI Team Data we have 3 example reports using the Forecast function. I would recommend looking at these to get a better idea of how they are built;

I hope this helps.

Hi Mark,

I just realized that I missed 1 condition that made my "forecast" function become disable, I didn't set my "Horizontal Axis" into time series -_-".

After I set it on, everything going well. Now I can use the forecast and trend function normally.

Thank you so much for your help.
