Invoice and Quote documents are in in the PDF or Word format.
See Generate a Quote File for detail information about generating a quote file.

Patch Release 2.80.1
The 2.80.1 release includes internal operational fixes.
Patch Release 2.80.2
The following issue was resolved in the 2.80.2 release.
Intermittent On-Demand Sync Error
Zuora 360 provides a workaround for a known Salesforce platform issue where some GET and POST HTTP requests became CONNECT requests and returned Zuora home page instead of the expected API responses. This issue caused On-demand Sync and other API Callouts to Zuora to fail intermittently.
Patch Release 2.80.3
The following issue was resolved in the 2.80.3 release.
Zuora 360 now retries all callouts to Zuora in the event that an intermittent/unexpected error occurs while sending the callout.
Patch Release 2.80.4
The following issues were resolved in the 2.80.4 release.
Chatter feed for the Billing Account object is automatically enabled after installing the Zuora 360 package
When you install Zuora 360 2.80.3, the chatter feed for the Billing Account object is automatically enabled on the billing account name field, potentially causing sync performance degradation. Now the chatter feed is disabled by default on the objects, Billing Account, Invoice, Subscription. You can enable the chatter feed on these objects manually after installation.
Incorrect Zuora 360 connection failure message when caused by no remote site setting
If you tested the Zuora 360 connection without an entry in the Salesforce remote site setting, you received a generic error message, "...failure after 4 attempts." The issue was fixed, and now the actual error message is appended to the generic error message.
Patch Release 2.80.5
The following issue was resolved in the 2.80.5 release.
A retry logic to the zLogin SOAP API call
The zLogin() call is now retried up to three times if Zuora returns a 'Read Timed Out' message' in a SOAP response.
Patch Release 2.80.6
