Default Value Changes for New Bill Runs
Starting from this release, when you create bill runs through the Zuora user interface, the following fields on the New Bill Run page and on the New Scheduled or Recurring Bill Run page have new default values.
- The From Batch field is set to Specific Batch, Batch 1 by default.
- The Automatically renew auto-renew subscriptions that are up for renewal check box is checked by default.
These new default values can help reduce potential billing errors. Zuora recommends that you keep default values for the above-mentioned fields when creating bill runs.
Enhancement for Unposting Posted Billing Documents
The Billing user permission "Cancel Posted Invoices" is now called “Cancel Posted Billing Documents”. This permission now controls whether to unpost posted billing documents, including invoices, credit memos, and debit memos.
By default, you can unpost billing documents in Posted status through the Zuora user interface and API.
For more information, see Billing Permissions and Unpost Credit and Debit Memos.

New Home Page for Easier Navigation
