Forecaster saves scenarios, not forecasts. To keep a forecast, you
can either export it to Excel, or save the scenario to re-run later.
Scenarios are initially valid during the quarter in which they were
created. When a new quarter's data is released, scenarios go
out-of-date. To continue using an out-of-date scenario, you can either
load it and save it anew (with any changes), or you click a button (PUSH)
to reassign its values to the current forecast period.
A scenario comprises 20 quarterly values for each of: employment
growth, completions, and CPI. Each quarter is initially populated with EA baseline values; any you don't replace will be saved as part of the scenario.
We don't currently support mobile devices. Using Forecaster on mobile is possible, but logging in can be difficult and certain parts of the interface might not work as expected, depending on your device and settings.
