Change Weekend days on ARIMA Tool

Alteryx Partner

Hi All,

I'm actually new in using Alteryx, and I wonder if I can change the weekend days on ARIMA tool or Time Series tools in general to be Friday and Saturday which are the weekend days in where I'm living now.

Hi @riam_abdullah 


Looking at the underlying R code it looks like the 'weekdays' option simply sets the frequency of the time series to 5. I can't see any references to specific weekdays being calculated. Therefore, I think providing your incoming data stream is in repeating sets of 5 days it doesn't matter if these days are Sun-Thu, Mon-Fri or any other 5 consecutive days.
