The first time a user navigates to a forecast week, the sales and labor forecasts for that week will be automatically generated based on the default projection model and forecast metric. Manual adjustments can be entered for future dates for both unpublished and published forecasts. Learn more about adjusting weekly forecasts here

While sales and labor forecasts are automatically saved as adjustments are made, only published forecasts are used in other areas of R365. A list of all areas that reference published forecasts can be found in the Weekly Forecasting Overview article.

The forecast amounts that will be published are displayed on the Sales Forecast and Labor Forecast rows for all days and all hours for the week. These rows display the final forecast after adjustments are applied.
