You must set up your model calendar for your forecasts.

Things to consider when you set your model calendar:

  • The type of data you have (examples: financial results, HR information, or inventory levels).
  • The frequency of the forecast you want to run.

The model calendar type you select depends on if your source data is monthly, weekly, or daily.

For more information about each calendar type, see Set the model calendar.

Note: PlanIQ doesn't support calendar periods in the data, such as P1 FY15.

If your source data is monthly, use the Calendar Months/Quarters/Years calendar type.

If your source data is weekly, use one of these calendar types:

If your source data is daily, you can choose any of the Weeks calendar types.

For each line item in the historical and related data modules, make sure to set the Time Scale to Day.
