A forecast can contain a lot of information and in some cases, a deep hierarchy. Often, the organization’s forecast and opportunities are disjointed. Sellers and sales managers need to understand where forecast values are coming from in order to introduce necessary changes that can help to resolve these gaps. In the forecasting capabilities for Dynamics 365 Sales, both the forecast and the underlying opportunity data are part of one fluid experience, allowing sellers to directly modify deal information in the flow and to instantly see changes to the forecast reflected.
- Benefit from a responsive forecast grid with visual cues: Enable visual representation of the whole forecast hierarchy and quota attainment in each cell, directly from the grid.
- Edit participating records inline: View and edit underlying opportunities for any calculated metric to instantly modify the forecast.
- Manage pipeline and visualization: Easily manage and update the full forecast with the drag-and-drop feature to move opportunities across different stages, to instantly update forecast data.
- Benefit from near real-time updates: Enjoy automatic recalculation of forecast values to ensure data is always as fresh as possible.
Forecast will now be visible in the Sales Hub sitemap and Forecast Category will appear on the out-of-the-box Opportunity Form.
This feature is available in Unified Interface only.
This capability is intended only for Dynamics 365 Sales Enterprise.
