How forecasting accounts for custom criteria
When you check inventory for a prospective line item that employs custom targeting criteria, keep the following in mind:
If the key-value accepts free-form values, forecasting takes them into account.
If the key-value accepts only pre-set values, then only those pre-set values that have been added 28 days prior to the forecast are fully accounted for when projecting inventory. For example, if you add a new predefined value (e.g. “chartreuse” in
colour = chartreuse), forecasts fully account for that additional value after 28 days. This is because it needs to be included in the forecasting sample file.
