    Super usefule.. Thanks..

    A suggestion from our use case scenario that would prove to be really useful:

    1. Trend lines are significant for tracking when projects might get completed. Would be nice to extrapolate to a certain value - For completion percentage , we would want to know when in time a project would get completed . i.e. dynamically alter x-axis (timeframe) to when value hits 100% or something else. Is this possible ?

    It would also be nice to limit the trend analysis to show for the future time... Charts get too cluttered when trend values are close to actual data values.

    After further investigation, the "Predictive Trend Line Plugin" work as expected on 6.6.1. The issue which Mark experienced is related to another plugin. 

    If someone encounters the same issue, please check your plugins first to make sure it doesn't interfere with the "Predictive Trend Line" plugin's functionality.

     

    Thanks,

    Orit

    Another issue within the steps.

    When adding the same field twice. You can't rename the second field. When trying to, it changes the name of both fields. I've a ticket opened on the issue. It's not just in line charts. It's within any widget.

    Step from the instructions above: 2. The most common scenario is to add the same measure twice, so that we can see the historical data as one series and then we can turn the second series into a trend line.

    I'm on Version 6.6.1.13002

    When you download the data the future results are not in the data set.  Can this be fixed?

    I am on version 7.0.2 and using this plug in downloaded on 4/5/2018. When I add the second measure and add the linear regression, I end up with a second column (mirroring the first measure) in the chart along with the linear regression. How do we stop the second column from showing up in the chart?

    Hi,

    Is there a way to turn on value labels for the data series but not for the regression line?

     

    Thanks,

    Hi Takashi,

    I have an issue about showing the Regression Line as a separate line with different color.

    I need to a Linear/Log Regression Line to "Revenue" measure so that I tried the first selecting the Regression option at first measures like below

    when I do that it shows the next 3 months values as dotted line BUT I'm NOT able to change the line color

    after that duplicated the Revenue measure and select the Linear Regression option only for this new duplicated measure. even if I'm able to change/define different color for this duplicated measure, it added/shows(as usual) the additional RED columns beside the first revenue measure.

    We're having a similar issue in 7.2 that Erkan Çiftçi reported so I won't add my screen shots. All existing dashboards using the plugin are broken with the newest version of the plugin and 7.2.

    We do have an older version of the plugin that keeps the existing widgets working, but if you edit an existing widget it will make the trend line go away. With new widgets the trend line doesn't even appear when you try to add it. There is no version number on the older version that we have that is partially working.

     

    I would say this is not working in 7.2

    Thank you for your feedback. we reviewed the items and decided to add support both options:

    1. Predictive line will replace existing measure added to the chart (Previous version). - Will allow to change color of trend line.
    2. Predictive line will be added as a new series to the chart without impacting existing series' (Current solution).

    Configuration will be done via config.js file in the plugin.

    We'll work on it and update in the next few weeks.

    Hi All,

    We updated to a new version that includes allows to revert to the previous approach where predictive trend line is replacing a series from metadata. that allows to set the color.

    Latest solution can be found here.

    Please let us know if you have any questions.

    Hey Avi,

    This is working perfectly for a customer, except they would like to trim the Trend Line to just trend the data.  No forecast. They are currently using the Linear Trendline option in Excel charts to produce the report.  Is there some widget script that could be provided to do that?  Example provided in the screenshot below.

    Long time no talk.  Hope to see you Eureka, Jim

    Hi Jim, indeed long time no talk!

    I'm not familiar with any widget script that does that. It can be done by changing the code of the plugin but it's not a feature we intend to incorporate to the official plugin version.

    Avi,

    Thanks.  I think you should reconsider officially supporting.  They are readily doing in Excel today with the Format Trendline menu (see screenshot).  They are asking me if they can do in Excel why can't a powerful tool like Excel do it.

    Regards, Jim
