    Ability to Manipulate Forecast Results?

    Sierra Shorey

      I have a dashboard that forecasts clicks on advertisers ads on a website by month, as well as their budget for each month. My supervisor would like a way to toggle different possibilities and see what the forecast would be. For example, we would like to be able to say "If we had $10,000 more for July, how would that increase budget for the next month?" or "If we had an extra 500 clicks in February for an advertiser, how does that affect future clicks?". I've tried doing research into other ways people manipulate the forecast but so far I haven't found anything clear. Does Tableau allow for multiple independent variables that can be changed at the dashboard level? Or would we have to go into the raw data (excel file), make changes there and then refresh to see the results? Any insight or examples are greatly appreciated!
