To continuously improve the user experience, Zuora introduced the next generation of its user interface (UI) in early 2022. The new UI has a more modern look and feel with additional enhancements and functionalities, such as reinvented list views and global search. This generation of the UI aims to bring a new user experience to all Zuora's applications.
Enable new UI experience
The new UI experience can be enabled or disabled for individual users by using a user profile setting called Enable New Zuora Experience. This setting is used to enable the following UI enhancements and functionalities for the current user:
- Reinvented list view with its subsequent enhancements
- Detail pages for supported objects such as invoices, credit memos, or payments.
To access this user profile setting, complete the following steps:
- Log in to the Zuora application.
- On the upper-right corner, click your avatar and then click Profile from the list.
- On the Personal Settings page, click Manage Your Profile. The Enable New Zuora Experience setting can be found at the bottom of the user profile page.
To disable or enable the new UI experience across all users within a tenant, contact Zuora Global Support.
The following functionalities are introduced to provide you with a new user experience.
The Global Search feature is introduced to Zuora UI by adding a search bar to the UI header. You can use this search bar to help you quickly find what you are looking for.
The search bar in the UI header uses a simple lookup search and returns the results that contain or exactly match the search keywords in the searchable fields across all supported objects as well as the navigation items on the left pane. For example, if you are looking for a specific account by using the account ID, not only the account but also the related objects such as invoices, orders, subscriptions, and payments will be returned.
The typeahead functionality is used to display five recent searches and presents a preview of search results to top hits for easier access. You can directly open the individual UI page from the top hits, or you can open the search results page to get a comprehensive view of everything related to the search.
On the search results page (as shown in the following graphic), all results on this page are categorized by the object type. Each object has predefined filters on the left side, which can help you narrow down the search results for the object that is currently selected.
Be aware of the following usage when you use the Global Search feature:
- The word or phrase that you type in the search bar is case insensitive.
- To return any search results, the length of the word that you type must exceed two characters.
- You can put double quotation marks ("") around the whole word or phrase that you type to search for an exact match. However, incomplete double quotation marks will return no results. You also cannot use inline double quotation marks, which means the double quotation marks are put around only part of the phrase.
- This feature can support both prefix search and infix search. For a valid prefix search, the length of the search word or phrase must be in the range of 3 to 20 characters. For a valid infix search, the length of the search word or phrase must be in the range of 3 to 10 characters.
Searchable and filterable fields
The following table lists the lookup keys for each object and the available filters on the search result page.
|Object||Lookup keys||Available filters|
The Payment Applied filter is used to filter the invoiced with 100% of the payment applied.
Reinvented list views
The reinvented list views as shown in the following graphic provide a comprehensive filter functionality to facilitate browsing data.
- You can filter the list items by the columns displayed in the list view as well as additional fields that are related to the current object.
- Each list view has a predefined set of filters, which include the most frequently used fields for filtering the current object. The predefined filters are displayed in the table header.
- You can add additional indexed fields to use as filters. Clicking Add New Filter on the list view page will display a drop-down list containing all indexed fields that are defined for the current object. You can choose any field from the list to apply a filter on the current list view. Click Clear to go back to the default list view. If multiple fields are specified for the filter, the binding filter criteria only support the AND logic.
A search box is provided for list views to filter across the string fields. The default method applied to the search criteria is "Starts With". You can switch to other search methods by clicking the arrow in the box. By default, custom fields are excluded from the search scope. To include custom fields in the search, click Custom Fields: Exclude. Click the same button again to switch between excluding and including custom fields in the search.
- Based on analysis of the most commonly filtered data, a set of quick filters is predefined specifically for each list view. You can use the quick filters to quickly filter the data on the list view with one click. For example, on the Invoices list view as shown in the following graphic, clicking the quick filter called Status - Error can quickly filter the invoices in error status.
- The filters that you add to the list views will persist throughout the user's session. After you log out or close the browser, the filters will be reset to the default.
