Forecast elements use a variety of techniques to produce projected values by analyzing existing values. The Data Forecast element adds forecasting functionality to its parent element.
When this element is present and an appropriate X-axis column is selected, a special selection list of forecasting options will become visible in the parent element's user interface. When an option is selected, the forecasted data is displayed in the chart as a dotted line.
If the X-axis column is of DateTime type, the data may be analyzed using either Time Series Decomposition or Regression methods, selected from an additional option list. Columns of Numeric type are analyzed using the Regression method.
