Alteryx Forecasting Tool
v3.0.0 [2020-11-12] (current stable release)¶
- The third version of the TIM Forecasting Tool supports Alteryx v2020.4. The major change in v2020.4 is that the python version embedded with Alteryx is upgraded from v3.6.8 to v3.8.5. This required to update all the external dependencies to be compatible with the new python version.
- This version is not compatible with Alteryx versions older than v2020.4

- support input timestamps in the format "yyyy-mm-dd hh:mm:ss.fff"
- adjusted GUI layout
- "G" output of the tool is deprecated
- running the tool with TIM v4.5 and backtesting turned on fails because of a changed logic behind the aggregated forecasts response
