Best Practices

Impact to Current Tasks

Before creating a “Custom” type Commission Schedule, one or more search should be created, which will be used to create Commission Schedule.
When you are creating a new commission schedule, you can select Custom to associate one of the new Commissionable Item searches with the schedule. This gives you greater flexibility for generating schedules.

Commissionable Item Searches and Quotas

Previously, quotas were set for each individual item. Now when you create a quota, you can choose to base it on one of the new Commissionable Item searches.
