# Where to Add Apply Forecast Operator in Random Forest Process

Hi there, I set up a Random Forest (RF) for a Time Series prediction and wondered how to add an Apply Forecast operator to get future predictions for my process? Pls see image.

Do I add it to the top row between the RF and Apply Model operators?

Cheers for any help, it'll be interesting to see how this RF compares with the ARIMA model in terms of accuracy of prediction with the real values.

88Contributor IIThanks, I already have 2 x Apply Model as can maybe be seen in the screenshot (if its large enough to see?) and I'm still not sure what to do to get it to predict future dates because the settings for Apply Model all refer to legacy controls that aren't needed!? Please see images -- one blown up larger.

Will there be a graph for the predictions and actual close in the results and statistics like my ARIMA set up? ...Which I can't see yet with my Random Forests process because the forecast / Apply Model isn't set up correctly?

Cheers,

88Contributor II88Contributor IIThat worked, however my Performance (2) now gives a Relative Error of 0.77% which sounds too good to be true because it seems like a result that would be associated with training and not testing?

I have this Random Forest Process (pls see image below) but I cannot get it to predict beyond the last date of my Excel file (11th Sept 2020) using Apply Model, is it correctly connected to the other operators, (it gives no warnings)?

Many thanks,
