Orders and Subscriptions
Reversed invoices and write-off invoices displayed when previewing a subscription through Zuora UI
The Zuora UI has now been enhanced to support displaying reversed invoices and write-off invoices when you preview a subscription through the Zuora UI. This functionality is only available if you have enabled the Invoice Settlement feature.
Invoicing and Tax
Enhancement to Invoice Item data source
The Invoice Item data source has been enhanced to better support standalone invoices. You can now export data stored in the fields on the following objects when the invoice item is generated from a non-subscription transaction:
- Product rate plan
- Product rate plan charge
Previously, those objects were only available when the invoice item had an associated subscription.
Enhancements to invoice and credit memo generation rule
The Invoice/Credit Memo generation rule billing rule has been enhanced to provide a new option called Put all negative charges and zero credit charges on a credit memo.
With this option, an invoice is automatically generated for all positive charges, while a credit memo is automatically generated for all negative charges and zero-amount credit charges.
For more information, see Rules for generating invoices and credit memos.

Launch of Zuora ProcessAI
Having a holistic view of your business processes could be challenging, especially when business complexity is rocketing and transaction data is exploding. Therefore, we now launch Zuora ProcessAI (ProcessAI for short) to assist in process discovery and optimization for your business. Built on the Zuora platform, ProcessAI ingests data from Zuora Billing, Collect and Revenue using built-in connectors and delivers accurate process analysis results using AI algorithms and machine learning.
With ProcessAI, you can easily discover and continuously optimize your business processes within Zuora applications to achieve better ROI. Additionally, you do not need to invest in integrations between Zuora and other applications for process mining and process analytics as all process data points in Zuora are automatically picked up by ProcessAI. It helps you save the cost of integration and simplify the application landscape.
After you have enabled this feature, you can access it on Zuora UI by clicking Process AI > Process Discovery from the left navigation menu.
This feature is in the Early Adopter phase. We are actively soliciting feedback from a small set of early adopters before releasing it as generally available. If you want to join this early adopter program, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.
