Forecast Templates List View
Use the Forecast Templates List view to create, edit, and delete forecast templates.
You use these templates to create forecasts for sites or business units that have little or no historical data. In addition, there are other uses for templates. For example, you can create templates for service objectives, such as Average Speed of Answer, and Service Level. In those cases, forecast templates are used to apply different values for different periods of the day, instead of using a single value for the whole day.
The following sections cover:
- Displaying the Forecast Templates List view
- Using the Templates table
- Creating, editing, or deleting templates
