Thanks for this suggestion. The FORECAST.ETS functions are available in version 16.x of Excel for Mac. We will continue to monitor this suggestion and prioritize it as appropriate with the other suggestions here.

I agree - the new forecast functions: FORECAST.ETS, FORECAST.LINEAR are actually listed in the Excel for Mac 15.17 online help but not available to as functions.
Equally, the Windows forecasting tool found under Data Tab next to What-if Analysis is very powerful and of great use to all users for financial forecast analysis:
It seems that Microsoft are now pushing to provide a seamless integration across Mac and Windows platforms yet the release of new features in Windows versions of Excel without replicating them in Mac is a contradiction in their roadmap.Jeremy Littman supported this idea ·
