Anaplan Prophet and MVLR are different from other algorithms in their feature input sources.

  • Historical data 
  • Related data
    • Can include calendar information (if applicable)
  • Synthetic data:
    • These features are created by PlanIQ automatically. They come from either historical or related data.  Examples are:
        • Exponential trends  based on historical data (MVLR only)
        • Linear trends based on historical data
        • Seasonality based on historical data
        • Lagged values based on related data and calendar 
          (for example, a gross margin prediction based on a fuel price change three weeks prior)

At the "create a related data module" stage, for the Anaplan Prophet and MVLR algorithms, you can include up to 28 related time series columns.
