Sales Forecasts are used to pre-plan your customer sales demand prior to the customer placing the order with you, to ensure that you have enough stock available, or in production, when the order comes through.
The Sales Forecast list is accessible via the Sales Forecasts button within the planning module.
The functionality on the Sales Forecast button is the same as Make for Stock. The first time you press the button it loads the Sales Forecasting list. Further subsequent clicks of the button will display an interactive menu allowing you to process a Sales Forecast demand. You can also access the same menu by right clicking on the Sales Forecast list.
