Orders and Subscriptions
New product selection options available in the Orders UI
The migration to full Orders is in Limited Availability. We are actively soliciting feedback from a small set of early adopters before releasing as generally available.
A pair of radio buttons has been added to the Product and charges area in the Orders UI to ease specifying a product. When specifying a product for a subscription, you can now toggle between the following options to select how to specify the product:
- Search by Product Name
- Specify complete Product SKU
Resolved: Term start date field missing in the Orders UI for evergreen subscriptions
Previously, the Term start date field was missing in the Orders UI for evergreen subscriptions. The issue has been resolved. You can now provide the term start date for an evergreen subscription through the Orders UI when:
- Creating a new subscription
- Updating the terms and conditions of an existing subscription
Support for updating debit memo dates through the Zuora UI
This feature is only available if you have Invoice Settlement enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is generally available as of Zuora Billing Release 296 (March 2021). This feature includes Unapplied Payments, Credit and Debit Memos, and Invoice Item Settlement. If you want to have access to the feature, see Invoice Settlement Enablement and Checklist Guide for more information.
When posting debit memos through the Zuora UI, you can now update the debit memo date for debit memos in the posting confirmation dialog.
If you choose to update the debit memo date through the Zuora UI, the new debit memo date defaults to the date when you post the debit memo. You can view the update history of the debit memo date in the History area on the debit memo details page.
Support for the confirmation dialog of ACH type Payment Pages
Zuora's Payment Pages 2.0 now supports adding the confirmation dialog box for creating ACH payment methods.
To add the confirmation dialog, you can select the Enable Confirmation Dialog check box, and edit the Confirmation Dialog field on the configuration page of the ACH type Payment Page.
Resolved: TSV/DSV file extension missing in the Data Query result
Previously, if you submitted a data query with
outputFormat set to
DSV, the query result was returned as a raw file with no extension. This issue has been resolved.
