Workflow Overview

Zuora Workflow is a Zuora product for designing, configuring, and deploying business workflows in Zuora.

A workflow is a sequence of tasks that are performed based on predefined logic. A workflow improves efficiency and reduces errors by automating a series of complex tasks that otherwise need to be performed manually and repetitively.

For example, you can create a workflow that suspends service for delinquent accounts and resumes service when the payment is received. When the workflow runs, the suspension and resumption of service will be performed automatically. You can also create a workflow to automatically write off invoices and cancel subscriptions when chargebacks occur.

Features

  • Easy for any user to create, edit, and deploy workflows.
  • Support a wide range of tasks that meet diverse business requirements.
  • Integrate quickly to other systems without the need for custom code.
  • Workflows can be started manually, via API, or based on a schedule.
  • Support workflow prioritization so that important workflows are run without delay.
  • The synchronous mode allows you to run a workflow and get results immediately.

Workflow Templates

Workflow templates are provided in Zuora Workflow for common usage scenarios.

Zuora recommends that you go through the list of workflow templates to see if you can find one that meets your requirements. Consider creating a blank workflow only when there are no templates that can be used. 

Supported Tasks

Tasks are the building blocks of workflows. You connect tasks with loops or conditions to create a workflow. 

Zuora Workflow supports a wide range of tasks. Combining these tasks in workflows, you are able to automate complex business processes in various scenarios.

See Workflow Tasks for details.

Integration with Other Zuora Products

You can integrate Workflow with the Configurable Payment Retry and Collections Window features of Collect. See Integrate Workflow with Other Zuora Products for details.
