How are we supposed to maintain the Demand forecast if many users need to maintain demand lines based on different dimensions, such as Allocation key, Item number, Customer group, Customer account, Country/region etc.? In AX 2012 R3 it is possibly to manipulate the Demand forecast in Excel using pivot tables and other Excel tools and purplish the changes back to AX. This is not an option in Dynamics 365, it is possibly to export the forecast to Excel, but the manipulation tools and the possibility to purplish the changes back to Dynamics 365 no longer exists. This Whitepaper shows from page 13 to 27, the possibility to manipulate the Demand forecast in AX 2012 R3: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=43128 How is it intended to be done in Dynamics 365?

Thank you for your feedback.

We are aware of the limitation and we will consider this in our roadmap, based on the incomming number of votes.

We have extended the office integration with a few fields and by default allowed us to use an Excel. We need to add supply demand as well.
