Forecast Settings Error with Trailhead - 'Define Forecast Rollups and Default Date Ranges' Unit

Hi All

The 'Define Forecast Rollups and Default Date Ranges' unit is giving me the following error when I have done exactly what is asked in the challenge, hence an apparent error in the Trailhead checking process:
Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong:
Couldn’t find default forecast display period 'Monthly', starting on '1 month ago', display '4 months'. Please double check the instructions.

Is there some apparently irrelevant setting I need that is not specified? It's not as if this is a complex unit!

Thanks
Keith

PS This fails in more than one playground org, including a brand new one...

Hi Lucia No, sorry - not yet. I think it's just a straight bug, and hopefully the Trailhead team will fix it soon. You there team? :) Cheers Keith Virus-free. www.avg.com

Hi,

I have completed this unit. :)
Try this unit on different org because I was getting the same error when I was using the same org in which I have done the previous unit. (Opportunity Revenue was my forecast setting type. )

Yes same issue.  Tried in a different org worked!

I am getting this error and am using one of the new orgs as well.  

Challenge Not yet complete... here's what's wrong: 
There was an unexpected error while verifying this challenge. Usually this is due to some pre-existing configuration or code in the challenge Org. We recommend using a new Developer Edition (DE) to check this challenge. If you're using a new DE and seeing this error, please post to the developer forums and reference error id: JLNXCHTK

I am seeing the same thing here.  I was using an org that was created yesterday, but I had been doing some other work in it for Trailhead.  So, I created a new one and the new one errored as well.  There should be some sort of bug reporting for Trailhead right on the page instead of just the forums.

Yes, this is definitely a bug and requires users to complete challenge 2 in a different org to challenge 1, which is the opposite to best practice.
I recommend everyone uses the feedback link on the module to strongly encourage the team to correct this.

Hi All,

You do not need to use a new playground. Simply change the opportunity forcast back to revenue and it will work. When its on "Quantity" you will receive this error.

Definitely a bug, but there is your hidden setting :)

Bumpity bump. This error is still occurring. Kirk's response is the workaround. But Salesforce needs to fix this.

I received the same error in Trailhead and cannot complete this exercise.

2 Different orgs. Opportunity set to revenue. Still errors out saying "We can't find the correct default date range selected. Make sure that you followed the instructions for adding it."

Hi guys, 

I added an additional Forecast type(Opportunity Quantity) and it worked for me.
I hope it works for you as well.

Cheers

We need to add "opportunity quantity" like what Sebastian said. If you followed the first challenge, there wont be an error.

I'm doing the Set Up Forecasting Unit Trailhead and got this error: Forecasting isn't enabled for Filip Baran. However, I do have Allow Forecasting checked for Filip and all users as directed in the project. Any ideas on what I may have done wrong? Thanks.

Followed Sebastian's suggestion and was able to bypass the error "We can't find the correct default date range selected. Make sure that you followed the instructions for adding it."
