    Does anyone have recommendations for Forecasting? We are planning to use D365 for forecasting by next summer and want to start learning more about the tools and/or plugins available as well as how others are doing forecasting from D365. Thanks!

    Hi Katherine,

    If you are using D365 Online, the April release should have a new Forecasting module available out of the box!

    Here are some details about it.

    Interesting.  Is this new Forecasting module intended to replace the older Goals entity?  The Goals are still using the classic interface forms (IE from 5+ yrs ago). We were concerned they might be deprecated and reluctant to use them, but couldn't find them listed as deprecated, and so started using the goals entity recently.  The page listed doesn't provide any clarification on this either.  Are you aware of any more specifics about MSFTs roadmap for forecasting?
