Flow allows you to project a measure into the future by a number of intervals. By default, a measure will be set to process “now” (i.e. 0 periods into the future).
Setting the “Projected” property of a measure to a positive integer value will set the measure to process into the future.
Notice that the chart in the “Context” section will show the “future” periods in the green shaded area.
Projected measures are useful for information relating to plans or predictive calculations.
