Forecasting data

Data that is suitable for forecasting has measure values that correspond to regularly spaced time points. You specify time and measures in visualizations by dragging time fields and measure fields into visualization slots. Optionally, you can also specify group fields that split the measure values by categories.

The following table is a summary of the field types and matching visualization slots that are supported in forecasting:

Slot Time fields (required) Measure fields (required) Group fields (optional)
Line chart slot x-axis y-axis Color
Bar chart slot Bars Length Color
Column chart slot Bars Length Color

No other visualizations or visualization slots are supported, with the exception of the Local filters slot
