Past Forecast Deviation (orms_past_forecast_deviation with GENREPPAR.FMX)
The Past Forecast Deviation report will display the actual number of yieldable, transient rooms sold versus the forecasted number of transient rooms and the percentage difference between the two values. This information is displayed per day, per yield category and includes a granular breakdown by how many days out from the arrival date. Additionally, four columns are displayed to indicate the four different forecasts internally calculated by ORMS (FCM1 – FCM4). The report can either be generated by room reservation or room cancellation.
Note: This report cannot be compared to any Opera report as it only displays ORMS relevant data for Transient, Yieldable reservations.
Note: When printing this Report help topic, we recommend printing with Portrait page orientation.
