The Forecast Hierarchy is a hierarchy that should rarely change once the hierarchy is defined. This is because, changing the hierarchy will cause the basis of the forecast to change. This release adds two changes to the Forecast Page:
Hierarchy Changes in Side Bar are Locked

Warning when Opening Hierarchy
