    How To Better Leverage Forecasting -- Getting Poor Future Estimates

    Sean Norse

      Hi all,

       

      I'm trying to build in forecasting to some of my dashboards, but keep getting estimates that have no variation.  In the below example, I am taking the number of sales per department over the past 2.5 years.   As you can see, when I drag the forecast over, it gives me very little variation in estimates for future months.  I've had this issue in general when trying to utilize forecasting for any operational activity.  Not sure if I'm using it incorrectly.
