Total amount now available during memo creation from charges through the Zuora UI
When creating a credit or debit memo from a product rate plan charge through the Zuora UI, you can now see the total amount of the selected memo items in the newly available Total Amount field in the Charge Line Items area. When memo items are selected or unselected, the total amount is updated automatically.
Resolved: Tax-only memo items could not be created for zero-amount invoice taxation items through the Zuora UI
Previously, during credit or debit memo creation from an invoice, tax-only memo items could not be created for the zero-amount taxation items of the corresponding invoice through the Zuora UI.
This issue has been resolved.
