How to include legacy historic demand for R3 Demand Forecasting?

  • 1.  How to include legacy historic demand for R3 Demand Forecasting?

    We are working on migrating to R3 from R2 (via re-implementation) and would like to use Demand Forecasting from day one after go-live.  Does anyone know how to include historic demand from legacy systems as part of the forecast calculations?

    Out of the box, AX will use the sales orders (or other transactions) only already inside AX, but since we are not migrating legacy transactions to R3, we need some other way to include those legacy transactions when Demand Forecasting builds the forecast.

    I found a data entity available in D365 to "import historical data for demand forecasts", but so far I have not seen anything for R3.

    Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.
