Option to Select Date Range for Forecast

EDW Support shared this question 17 months ago

Hi

Is there a way to select the period on which a forecast is based?

Our customers would like to be able to use the forecasting and other functions in their reports, however there may be periods where there is poor data available or where data is not available. Apart from changing the date range of the report, is there another way to select the period e.g. select forecast based on Jan-Mar 2018.

Thanks

Wendy

Hi Wendy,

The currently forcastings function will automatically determine the periods by the data provided. Your options here are to either split the data charting wise into the data you want to forcast off of, or to use something else like our R ETL functionality to create your own forcasting function.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi

I have advised our customers to select the data they want to forecast off and not to select periods with no or bad data as we are not using the R ETL functionality.


Thanks for your help.

Sounds good, I am going to close this for now, but let me know if you have any problems with that.
