|The ForecastingItemCategory field differs from the existing ForecastCategoryName field.
In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, it contains the cumulative rollup categories. When inserting manager or owner adjustments, the values you insert for ForecastCategoryName and ForecastingItemCategory must be compatible with each other. In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, the ForecastCategoryName is nullable.
- The ForecastCategoryName field represents the forecast category of the underlying opportunities rolling up to forecast amounts. In organizations using Cumulative Forecast Rollups, the ForecastCategoryName field can be null because the cumulative forecast amounts include opportunities from multiple forecast categories.
- The new ForecastingItemCategory field represents the type of rollup a forecast amount or adjustment is from. In organizations using individual forecast category columns, it contains the individual forecast rollup categories.
