    A daily forecasting model can be quite complex in the sense that it will have a lot of transaction data (at a daily level). The major thing is the configuration of the time dimension. Your time dimension should have the granularity till the days. Depending on the reporting requirements, you can maintain the hierarchy (may be as YEAR, QUARTER, MONTH, WEEK, DAYS). Accordingly, you might want to create custom measures as well.

    Hope this helps.

      Hi Yani,

      To see forecasts you can have Daily, Weekly, Quarterly, Monthly and Yearly data which are by default designed on an hierarchial manner in BPC tool. When you want to enter forecasts daily then you can select those base members in the memberset of input schedule control panel. If you want to see any other also then also you can customize your contol panel in the input schedule and see it accordingly. You can also see reports in the same manner.

      For more details, please refer to the input schedule guide with respect to the Contol panel settings and membersets.

      Hope this clarifies you.
