Flexible forecast provides three different views that you can see from the item, three different two dimensional views.

This is what happens in the video

So if I’m looking on item number thousand and I search for the forecast.

We have three different views here in the header. The first one forecast per period will show me within whatever period interval I have defined and within period option, it will show me only this item in the different periods, forecasting periods, and it shows me the forecast quantity. So this is one item only, many periods displaying the forecast quantity.

Whereas if I take the next one, Forecast per dimension.

The forecast per dimension will still show only one item, one fixed period that you can change of course. So one line here, the second line would be item number thousand, project code, which is my global dimension 1, 12 and then all the figures for that combination. So this is one item, the numbers in the full period and then divide it by dimension.

The last View.

The forecast in period for all items is still displaying one period that you can set here but it display all the items that contain forecast that you can show forcast on. So you can display this per month if you want to see the complete forecast in one month. So with this three view, you can view forecasts differently in two dimensional views, but it’s easier to overview and you can also from one of them, you can call the other ones so it’s easy to navigate through.
