Can we run model deviation task or other tasks other then forecasting task on time series models in Predictive Factory 3.0


I am using Predict Factory 3.0 tool to automate my model management. I have imported time series model into my project and I am able to run forecasting tasks. But when I try to configure other tasks like model application task or model deviation task. It is not detecting time series models. So, is it the case that I can run only forecasting task on time series models not other tasks like model application, deviation and retrianing tasks on time series models?

What I want to do is: I want to apply forecasting only if the model is confident enough having less MAPE. How can I achieve this?

    Yes for time series models, only time series forecasting task.

    The rationale is below:

    - Each time you use the TSF task, a new training is performed.

    - No need then to check for the deviations, as training is always performed

    - You can output the forecasting results to a new table which meets the same purpose as the model application task.

    In a nutshell, the TSF task contains all that you need :-)

    I'll raise to our doc team that we should do a better job explaining which kind of tasks apply to which models and what is the typical matching or task flow users have to do.

    Best regards,
