Hi folks -

I was drawn to RapidMiner Studio because of its "no-code" environment from an industry outside of computer science, and hence have no programming chops whatsoever.  I'm trying to set up a simple time series prediction model with 20 attributes and 1 label upon which to predict. There are approximately 75 rows in my data. I want the window size to be 7 and to predict on the very next step.  The data is on an excel spreadsheet, is arranged by date in one column, the label is in a second column, and all other data - as attributes - are also displayed in columns.The prediction is a 2-class problem. Not a regression. I have closely followed the introductory video in how to set up a simple "windowing" operator, using alternatively SVM, deep learning & decision tree models (for no particular reason...just want to get something to work), but when i attempt to run it it complains in ways I can't possibly seem to decipher.  Can anyone help me walk through this?

I promise you my first borne...Richard

    Hi Richard,

    To install the "Forecasting" extension, you have to : 
     - go to Extensions --> MarketPlace
      - enter "forecasting" in the search box and click on the "search" button
     - select the "Forecasting 0.1.2" extension and click on "Install" button

    Did you try reviewing any of the RapidMiner Academy videos on time series modeling?  They should help you get started with the Series operators.
    There is also a new extension called Forecasting with a pretty automated univariate and multivariate forecast operator.  You may want to try that out as well.

    Yes, have gone though all the times series videos. Still no joy.  THANKS once again for the tip off to the new "Forecasting" extension.  Problem:  I can't find it.  Is it cleverly hidden from us amateurs anywhere I'm overlooking?
