We are upgrading to 8.0 from 6.61 and we want to keep our interface looking the same to users.  At 8.0, it split our QuoteDetail (Now quote detial and product selector) into two seperate pieces. If I add two, it uses extra real estate on the page and requires the ProductSelector to be very large to see many at once.

 

I tried the UnifedQuoteDetail visualforce page and the inferface is different.  Our biggest issue is that we can lock the Quote Charge Tier List Price field for the historic productselector by making the field read-only in Salesforce but the newer version on the UnifiedProductSelector ignores that field level security.  We can't update to 8.0 because drives a hole through our margin control system.

 

If you could restore the ability to use the previous "QuoteDetail" VF even if it is under a new name?

Is it also possible to have an operator "is not equal to" in the filter settings for guided selling?

This might be helpful for, e.g. excluding countries for a regional availability of a product.

Thanks,

The Edit Features dropdown option is still displayed even when Features is not enabled in Zuora or in Salesforce. This should be removed when Features it not enabled.

In Zuora Quotes, if you create or update New Subscription Quote, Amendment Subscription Quote and Renewal Subscription Quote, following fields are displayed in the roll-up feed in Opportunity .
 
- Name
- Opportunity (name) 
- Status
- MRR (Delta MRR)
- TCV (DeltaTCV)
 
Client would like to use chatters, but would not like to see the above fields in roll-up feed in Opportunity when New Subscription Quote, Amendment Subscription Quote and Renewal Subscription Quote are created and updated.
 
According to the Knowledge Center, it is able to control On/Off of chatters. However, it is not able to control which fields to show in roll-up feed. Should have a capability to select which fields to show in chatter's roll-up feed.

Hide rows from a quote PDF

Status: New Idea
by Scholar grayjoa on ‎01-27-2017 03:46 PM

Sometimes a quote contains charges that do not need to be shown to the end customer, particularly for usage charges, but filtering them out if very difficult and not user friendly using mailmerge. Would be great to have a way to do this by not showing charges with a certain custom or standard field value.

Invoice Line Item

Invoice line item required as part of the Z-360 sync process

Core Zuora has a setting that can be enabled to allow up to 20 amendments in one call but even when that setting is enabled Zuora for Salesforce doesn't use it and the quote metrics cannot be correctly calculated.

Would be great to be able to push Email History from Zuora's Customer Account to Salesforce (maybe Billing Account).


This way our Customer Support and Sales Reps could see what kind of communication was done to the customer.

Sync Today's MRR to SFDC

Status: New Idea
by Support Moderator on ‎12-20-2016 06:10 AM

Customers have requested the ability to sync the "Today's MRR" field from the Zuora UI to SFDC via 360 sync. Is this a possible future enhancement?

In Zuora it is possible to configure charges to end after x billing periods but that option isn't available when configuring the product catalog in Salesforce and using it on Salesforce CPQ quotes and contracts. It would make it an option to have a negative recurring charge that ends after x billing periods instead of a discount line item which Salesforce CPQ does not support. I understand this may cause an issue with the quote calculations on the Salesforce CPQ side but it's easier to push that as an issue to them but still have Zuora and the connector support it.

Populate features on products that are Original

Status: New Idea
by Savvy Scholar ehavens ‎11-08-2016 11:19 AM - edited ‎11-08-2016 11:20 AM

For a Renewal Quote, the object "Quote Product Feature" does not contain any values for Quote Rate Plans that have the field zqu__AmendmentType__c = Renewal.  Because there are no changes it doesn't list the features already assiciated with that product.  When a Quote PDF is generated, the feature table is empty for that product.  

 

It would be better if the object Quote Product Feature contained the existing features.  Then the QuoteFeatures table would display features for new products, updated products, and renewal products (original).

Customer is requesting to have Invoice Item Line and Payment information to be available in Salesforce. The customer added that they would like line items in Salesforce in order for them to measure how many sales they've had of particular products. Then, it would be helpful for the payment information, especially, status in SFDC so that they do not have to to log into Zuora to verify this information.This in turn, would allow the customer to to make use of the Salesforce's reporting tools. 

 

This is being evaluated by our Product Management and tracking number is DE5123 / COM-1297.

Recently Salesforce.com designed a brand new user-interface called Lightning. Lightning is free of charge for all Enterprise customers, and represents a very big step in the right direction for Salesforce user experience. Unfortunately this change requires vendors to update their applications in order to take advantage of the new UI.

It would be great to make the quotes package to be compatible with these feature to be able to use the new UI.

In Zuora we have the ability to sync the Sales Rep field to SFDC. However we cannot update the sales rep field from SFDC to Zuora. Customers are requesting that they have the ability to sync from SFDC to Zuora as well for the Sales Rep Field.

 

Thanks,

Update Zuora Z-Force Sample Code

Status: New Idea
by Master MaggieL on ‎05-11-2016 12:30 PM

https://github.com/zuora/Z-Force has many Apex code samples for plugins and interfacing with the Z-Quotes.  Most of these are out of date with current state of Zuora - such as it still uses DateTime when app expects Date and deprecated objects such as QuoteCharge.

 

It would be good to have a new set of samples developed with the current version of Z-Quotes.

Zuora is soon releasing a new functionality to suspend/resume subscriptions. this will be a great help in supporting seasonal customers, but it would be much better if it were also supported through zuora quotes! This way the salespeople and operations can make those changes, and they can go through the standard quote approval process before impacting our billing.

Currently in Z-Force (Salesforce) Zuora inserts and updates invoices for customers.  However when an invoice is adjusted, that change is not reflected in Salesforce.  This impacts our ability to see what a customer's true invoice amount is.

We could use an adjusted invoice amount on each invoice in order to calculate invoice totals for customers month over month.

 

Thanks!

Add 360 Sync "Management" Settings

Status: New Idea
by Scholar jbrown on ‎11-04-2016 06:50 AM

We run into data issues in Salesforce because when we run the 360 sync, it syncs ALL products, rate plans, charges, ever...even if we have deleted them.  It would be extremely helpful and make our Salesforce data much cleaner if there were either global settings in Zuora Commerce that would allow us to check "Don't sync deleted products" (and/or rate plans, charges, etc.) AND/OR be able to manage it on a record-by-record basis.  The latter would also be helpful during the development of new products.  We could mark them as "Do Not Sync" until it is complete.

 

This caused us the biggest issue when we paid to have our API sandbox rebuilt.  The products didn't get created correctly the first few times so the services team deleted them and recreated them.  Since Zuora maintains deleted records in their DB, those too get synced.  Although the deleted records get marked as such in Salesforce, it creates hundreds of records that we'll never use.  Deleting them from Salesforce is futile because the next sync will re-add them.

Optimize Quotes Layout for SF1 App

Status: New Idea
by Scholar AnnaRudenko on ‎04-25-2016 02:37 AM

At the moment Quote Information is not being displayed fully in SF1 UI.

The user could only see a cropped part of the screen. the only way to view the full details is to click on the Quote and get it opened in a new screen.

This is very confusing and not user friendly. 

 

Please could we have Quote Information not cropped but rather minimized to display the full details as soon as user opens a Quote?

Feature Request: Auto-populate Bill To and Sold To contact fields in Salesforce when creating New Quote

Status: under evaluation

Reference Number: DE10671

Business Need: Since Bill To / Sold To contact have been identified at the early stages of the account creation process, these fields are requested to be auto-populate with those details in new Z-Quote VisualForce page and at the same time retain the ability to change these details when needed.
