After we need to define the past data we will use to forecast on, and how many days we want to forecast in the future. You get an immediate example of the forecasted metric, including a red line to show the threshold you’ve set the alert on. You can chose to automatically resolve alerts when they no longer hit the threshold you’ve set.
