Click on the Outliers icon in the Data Tools group on the Forecasting tab to open the Outliers Options dialog box. This is identical to the Outliers tab in the Options.
When you generate forecasts, Forecast Pro uses the current settings in the Outliers tab on the Options dialog box to determine the default behavior for detection and correction of outliers. There are three choices:
None. Do not detect or correct for outliers.
Detection only. Detect and report outliers but do not correct for them (i.e., base the forecasts on the uncorrected values).
Detection and correction. Detect and correct outliers (i.e., base the forecasts on the corrected values).
Please consult The Outliers Tab in Forecast Pro Options for more details on these settings.
You may override project level-settings for an end-item selected on the Navigator by selecting Off, Detect or Correct from the drop-down on the Outliers icon. You can also revert back to the global default settings by selecting Default from this drop-down. Forecast Pro only detects outliers for end-items (i.e., non-group level data), so the selections are not available if a group level is selected on the Navigator.
Outliers are associated with the following modifiers:
(no modifier). Revert back to the default project-level setting (specified on the Outliers tab on the Options dialog box) for the specified item. This option is used to remove any of the outlier modifiers (listed below) from the Navigator.
\OUTLIER=OFF. Do not detect or correct outliers for the specified item.
\OUTLIER=DETECT. Detect and report outliers for the specified end-item, but do not correct for them (i.e., base the forecasts on the uncorrected values).
\OUTLIER=CORRECT. Detect and correct outliers for the specified end-item (i.e., base the forecasts on the corrected values).
