•Login/Permissions tab — Ability to view or maintain supply and to maintain forecasts if requests are to be made for supply while the ability to maintain supply is necessary for direct supply
•Strategic Planning settings — demand of named resources must be allowed
•Departments/Teams must be available for Demand Forecasting to be included here.
•Project will be automatically displayed if a single project has been specified at the search filter, otherwise select a level one project from the list.

•Period From/To specify the range of open planning periods to be covered by the allocation.
•Generate Demand Forecast must be Yes for a Request type to generate a forecast of demand requests to be fulfilled. For a Supply type, you may optionally choose to generate a forecast that reflects the direct supply, if authorized through your Login .
