This feature is in the Early Adopters phase. We are actively soliciting feedback from a small set of early adopters before releasing as generally available. If you want to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support or contact your Account Executive, and provide the ID of the Salesforce org on which you want to enable CPQ X.


  • Before you start using the Quote Studio page to configure quote information, ensure that the fields displayed in each page component meet your business requirements. For more information about configuring Quote Studio fields, see Customize field sets for CPQ X.
  • Familiarize yourself with the Quote Studio page. See Quote Studio user interface to learn different page components, icons, and additional actions you can take in Quote Studio.


After you access the Quote Studio page, take the following steps to configure the information on this page:

After you enter the Quote Studio page, click Expand_Quote_Details in the Quote Summary card at the top to review and configure the quote information in the expanded view, including the quote name, associated account and opportunity, the valid period of the quote, and whether it is a primary quote.

    • If you want to create a ramp deal:
      1. switch the Ramp toggle to the on position. 
      2. Select the length of ramp intervals from the Ramp Interval Length dropdown list. The ramp intervals are determined based on the quote start date and ramp interval length.
        Note: if you select Specific Months, you must also specify the Specific Ramp Frequency field that indicates how many months are included in a ramp period.
    • If you want to create a non-ramped subscription, switch the Ramp toggle to the off position.
  3. Configure the products and rate plans on which the subscription is created.
    1. Click Browse Products
    2. Find the product and rate plan upon which the subscription quote will be created, hover over the rate plan and click Add selection. Repeat this step until you have added all intended product rate plans.
      Select product for new quote
    3. Click Add Selections. The selected product rate plan details and charge metrics are then displayed. For ramp deals, you can click different ramp interval tabs to view the charge information and charge metrics for each ramp interval.
    4. If you want to update the quantity, discount, list price, effective price, or custom fields you add to the table, you can directly update the corresponding field. The Charge Subtotal and Subscription Total amounts are recalculated in real time for each update.
      You can also make updates to the products such as adding or removing charges on a certain date, and creating mid-interval updates. See Manage products in quotes for more information.
