TCV calculation change for recurring charges with weekly based billing periods
As of Zuora Billing Release 288, Zuora has changed the TCV calculation methodology of recurring charges with weekly based billing periods to be the same as that of the recurring charges with monthly based billing periods.
With this change, TCV of a recurring charge equals to the Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) multiplied by the number of months that the charge is effective. ^^^ What is the calculation before this Release?

Thanks for asking! This is Yifang Wu from the docs team.
According to the previous version of this Knowledge Center article, the calculation before this release for the weekly based billing period is as below:
Follow the formula below to calculate TCV values of recurring charges:
TCV = (Price/Number_of_Days_of_Base_Price) * (Charge_Effective_End_Date - Charge_Effective_Start_Date)
For example: A recurring rate plan
TCV = ($140/7)*19 = $380
Update: The release to US Production and EU Production is rescheduled. We will update the schedule once confirmed.
