Forecasting-How to get a near correct Forecast?

Hi!

 

I have noticed the new feature in power bi to forecast as a Visual now. But there is a problem in forecasting day-wise even after inputing data for past 2 Months day-wise. The Forecast would show 2.2M but on an average on suppose that same day each week it has been only 1.8 M. How should I get the Forecast near actual with at least 90% Probaility.  

 

I want a forecast that show day-wise as in whats the sales gonna be in the next 10(may be less accurate) days or next 3 days(more accurate). 

 

Please do help out.

 

With Regards

Hi @agragesh123,

 

The forecasting feature utilizes built-in predictive forecasting models to automatically detect the step (monthly/weekly/annually) and seasonality in your data to provide forecasting results.
