Why does my Custom Field or Overlay Forecast Type appear inactive in Setup, but active in the Metadata API?
|Knowledge Article Number||000199440|
In some organizations that participated in either the Overlay Splits Forecasts pilot or the Custom Field Forecasts pilot, these forecast types can appear disabled in Setup, but active in Metadata API output.
This situation can arise if the organization participated in the pilot and then stopped using the feature and had the pilot permission disabled by Salesforce.
If you want to make the status of these forecast types consistent in Setup and the Metadata API, choose one of these solutions.
Note that when you delete a forecast type, all of its quota and adjustment data is also deleted.
