How flat is flat enough?

In preparation for laying some vinyl tile (12x12 squares, commercial grade) in my basement, I used floor leveler (a liquid product that is poured on) to fill in some seriously low spots. There is now a small ridge (1/8" or less) at the edges where the leveler meets the bare floor. Will this cause a problem in laying the tiles? Do I need to now use leveler on the entire floor?

use Ardex feather finish to smooth the edge.

Great, thanks. I was hoping I wouldn't need to pour the leveler on the entire floor (200+ square feet) since it's pretty expensive.
