Usage of Cal Factor Measurement in N5531S Measuring Receiver

We are using the Measuring Receiver system (Option 233 PSA) for Signal Generator calibration.
I have a few doubts in the Tuned RF Level Measurement,

I could understand that the Range 2 Switch Level and Range 3 Switch level are the input level at which the measuring system changes the range of measurement. ( we make the Range switching Auto)

What is the use of Cal Factor?
Does the cal factor value has any affect in the Power measurement displayed?
Do we need to use that value in calculating the original value of the Power?

Thanks for your help in Advance,
