I am fairly new to PowerBI and need some direction on the best way to create a 24 month rolling forecast. I want to show the results of the calculated 24 months rolling forecast in one visualisation, and am unsure of the way to proceed.
In the Query Editor, I created two custom date columns to add 1 and 2 years to the actual transaction date.
In the Data View, I created two measures to calculate the year1 and year2 forecasts using the annual inflation from a separate table.
I now want to show the year 1 and year 2 calculated forecast in one visualisation and on one timeline. I don't want to have two separate visualisations.
Should I create a calculated forecast table and push the year1 and year2 calculations into it? I would then be able to have one visualisation for the data.
I appreciate any advise on this.
Solved! Go to Solution.
you don't need the additional columns for the additional years - just additional rows in your calendar table (see how to create one here: https://www.sqlbi.com/articles/creating-a-simple-date-table-in-dax/)
then you expose your forecast and sales using the measures and you should be able to do so in one visual, as they will all share the time axis
