Forecasting & Anomaly Detection Reports

Forecasting for Partnerships predicts how your KPIs are likely to trend over a configurable date range. This feature applies machine learning to provide valuable analytics that can help you predict which of your KPIs will meet or exceed their goals, and which ones could use attention.

Anomaly Detection for Partnerships displays a range of predicted values in the Performance by Partner report. When the range is displayed, you can see if your partner's performance fell within the predicted range, or if it falls outside of that range.

Performance by Partner with Anomaly Detection displays a range of predicted values on the Performance by Partner report. When the range is displayed, you can see if the actual data fell within the range we had predicted, and if it falls outside of that range, there may be an investigation needed. It’s a quick, visual way to highlight areas of potential analysis.

  1. From the left navigation menu, select Performance → By Partner with Anomaly.

  2. In the trend graph, select Anomalies to view the Anomaly graph.

    • You'll see the anomaly range within the graph as the blue area in the graph—if the line falls outside of this range, it indicates an anomaly from the forecasted range.

    • You can use the dropdown next to Anomalies to change the metric that the trend graph uses to visualize your data.
