Overriding Rate Scale Tiers

If a Commission Rate Scales record is linked to the Commission Tiers tab, the inherited tier records can have their ranges and rates overridden by selecting the Override Range or Override Rate options. Selecting these items allows the user to update the otherwise locked range amounts and rate percentage.
