Haven't used the forecast tools in while

Certainly not the most efficient possible workflow, but I got there.  (Some of my less efficient choices were on purpose, such as keeping actual counts as a separate field from forecasted counts, even though it meant a little more data prep and a marginally more complex formula.)

 

I've been meaning to do more with the time series tools, predictive tools, etc., so this was good practice!

Cool challenge, never had the chance to get my hand on the time series!

Hope the model is wrong and we're gonna be there faster :)
