Invoicing and Invoice Settlement
UI enhancements for credit and debit memos created from invoices
The Credit and Debit Memos feature is only available if you have the Invoice Settlement feature enabled. The Invoice Settlement feature is in Limited Availability. If you wish to have access to the feature, submit a request at Zuora Global Support.
Zuora has enhanced the Invoice Settlement feature to support the following memo operations in the invoice item information area on the Create Credit/Debit Memo page:
- New fields called Service Start Date and Service End Date are now available. You can use these fields to specify the memo service period.
- A new field called UOM is now available. This field displays the units to measure usage.
- A new field called QTY is now available. You can use this field to edit the number of units for memo items that are created from invoices originated from all product rate plan charges, except for flat-fee ones.
- A new field called Unit Price is now available. This field displays the per-unit price of the memo item.
The enhancements apply to scenarios where credit and debit memos are created from invoices.
