Order Line Item object and fields available in HTML templates
You can now configure HTML templates to display information about all the fields of the Order Line Item object, including custom fields.
For example, you can first use the Data Table component to build a charge details table in a template. Then, you can add columns by selecting the Order Line Item object and its fields like Amount, Description, and so on.
For more information about these fields, see How to display order line item information on invoices and Order Line Item object fields and Data Query.
Skip function available in HTML templates
When configuring HTML templates, you can now use the
Skip function to skip the processing of N records and return the remaining records after N records are skipped.
Skip function, you can implement advanced use cases such as displaying a fixed layout on the first page. For example, you can configure this function to display a fixed number of records, followed by a payment slip at the bottom of the first page. Meanwhile, the remaining records are displayed on the following pages.

Zuora Central Platform
Support for ignoring Pending status for workflows
Workflows are now placed into the
Pending status if there are pending tasks during execution, such as the Approval Task, Delay Task, and Callout Task Retry.
Since this new functionality may change behavior for existing workflows, the Ignore Pending Status option is introduced. If you’ve set a workflow to ignore the
Pending status, the workflow status switches to
Finished and the On Finish branch could execute multiple times for each occurrence of pending tasks moving to the
Error status. As a result, this could also create unwanted success or failure notifications.
The Ignore Pending Status option is checked for all the existing workflows, and it is not checked for new workflows by default.
You can update this setting for a workflow version under the Main > Runtime section on the Settings page of the workflow version.
Support for Configuration Templates in Deployment Manager
We now provide new feature called Configuration Templates in Deployment Manager. With Configuration Templates, you can now configure your tenants in minutes by importing a Templated Metadata Configuration File. Using configuration templates, you can simplify manual configuration processes that previously took hours to complete manually. Also, you can combine, validate, deploy, release, redeploy and release efficiently.
