Today we are excited to announce that two AI builder preview capabilities are now generally available. Features that are generally available are considered production ready.
Both new capabilities can be found under the Prediction model card in AI Builder. One of them is prediction of multiple outcomes, and the other is prediction of a numerical field. These new features make the prediction model richer, and be able to solve more business problems for you. Previously, AI Builder prediction model could predict binary outcomes, such as whether a shipment would arrive on time or not. Now you can use it to predict more than 3 outcomes, like will a shipment arrive early, on-time or late. You can also predict a number, like how many days it would take to close a customer ticket.

With the release of these capabilities, they’re now considered premium features. You will need an AI Builder add-on license or an active trial to use them.
To predict multiple outcomes, you just need to create a prediction model, and when picking the target column, the Choice columns are available in the dropdown list. Select one column to see the available prediction outcomes. You could select all the outcomes, or just the most relevant to your business problem. You could also map them to two outcomes if you want to do a binary prediction by clicking the Manage Outcome button in the top navigation bar.
To predict a number, go ahead and create a prediction model. At the select outcome step, select a numerical field as your target column. We support all types of numerical columns in Dataverse, including whole number, decimal number, floating point number, and currency.
To use the model, follow the steps in AI Builder to finish training, and if the result looks good, publish the model. Once it’s published, you can use your model in Power Apps or Power Automate.
