In the sports bar and grill world it is very important to keep track of weeks of big events. Forecasting could get much more accurate if I could 'Tag' any week I want to be saved and then have it show up in a special group of weeks.
For example: If I have an upcoming Home Football Game for KState University vs Oklahoma with a 2:30 kickoff, I would go look at the last 3 years of Conference Home games that had 2:30 kickoff times. I do this currently, but I do it in excel because I can't see anything past a year in HotSchedules in the Forecaster. The problem with that is all I can do is get the total for the day figured out. I am guessing if I could actually apply 4 or 5 weeks of history that had those kinds of games, I would be able to get very accurate on when we get busy and when I need to schedule people.
It should work just like you have the sections to 'Apply Weeks' but let me choose and 'Tag' the weeks in that group somehow so I reference them later. The same thing could be used for major holidays or local event weekends
