Set the forecast and schedule interval

You can set the granularity for your short-term forecasts and your schedules.

Important things to know
  • You must have security profile permissions for Analytics, Forecast and schedule interval - Edit. For more information, see Security profile permissions for Forecasting, capacity planning, and scheduling.

  • You must specify an interval for short-term forecasting and scheduling.

  • Amazon Connect supports 15- or 30-minute intervals. For example, if you select 30 minutes as the interval, your short-term forecasts are generated for 30-minute intervals (that is, 20 contacts between 9:00 AM-9:30 AM), and your schedules are computed for 30 minute intervals.

  • You must set up a forecast and a schedule interval before you can generate forecasts or create forecast groups.

  • After you set the forecast and schedule interval, you cannot change it.
