Gradebook - remove overrides from grade items (Single view)

Grades iconThis entry relates to the Gradebook.

If you have inadvertently modified grades directly in the gradebook (rather than though the activity) they override all other grade entries and can no longer be modified through the activity. An overridden grade is highlighted in yellow as per the image below in the Grader report.
