How do you read the TS Forecast Factory Tool?


I'm working on a daily forecast for 31 days.

Using the TS Forecast Factory Tool how do you read the period and sub period columns?

My example is I want to forecast Jan 1 thru 31st of 2019.



Hi @jthompson789


The Period and Sub-period will be dependant on when your data ended.



If your data is daily, the period will correspond to the Month and the Sub Period the day in that month.


In the TS Model Factory tool, you can set the start period at the bottom, I'd recommend doing that, as Alteryx will then update the Period and Sub period to correspond after that
