Can Zuora Lock the "Post" buttons in the Bill runs and Invoices if the InvoiceNumbering App is correctly setup and active? This way users would only press post after being unlocked. Currently users press "Post" without knowing if the InvoiceNumbering App has finished, and it should be transparent to them.

Basically we need lock the post button and details editing if the InvoiceNumbering App is doing it's magic.

Reporting on Promo Codes

Status: New
by Scholar bheckard 4 weeks ago

Hi there,

 

My company is using the Promo Codes app as part of our Zuora solution. I am told that there are no reporting capabilites for the Promo Codes app.

 

Knowing which codes are used the most/least would help us to know which are/are not working.

 

And at a more basic level, the inability to report on Promo Codes activity is a fairly serious omission.

 

Thank you,

Barry

With the new CM/DM functionality reaching LA stage this month, client willing to switch to it (or start using it) AND needing sequential invoice numbering will not be able to generate sequential sequences for posted CM/DM... 

This is a gap in the overall functionality...

 

You may say: yes, but then they already have different sequences for Invoice and CM/DM... which was one of the reason why they needed invoice numbering before (ie, to differentiate sequences of <0 and >0 invoices)... so, now they don't need invoice numering anymore...

 

I'd say: nope... because invoices as well and CM/DM can be cancelled, and this would create gaps in sequences... so a need for the ability to create true sequences for Posted document remains...

Promo Code Management App

 

The ability to override price and billing frequency, in addition to adding discounts would be very helpful in building campaigns/promotions.

 

In a campaign, there is often a mix of rate plans and charges.  Specific charge prices are often reduced when they form part of a bundle.  A discount is then applied over the top of the reduced price.

 

As a further step/enhancment, it would be great to add the Price Books (app) to campaigns, which would achive similar to the request above.

Hi Connect Team,

 

It would be great to be able to create an Amendment "Update Product" into a workflow.

The promo codes [Connect] app is cool and serves it's purpose. THIS post does a great job explaining installation and how to use them.

 

However, promo codes must be applied via API. This makes it challenging to create a quick proof of concept. As a non-developer, I have to now rely on my development team to build an interface just for testing or a PoC. I think this is a big miss!

 

I propose adding a feature so customers with the Promo Code Connect app, can apply a promo code when creating a subscription. See screenshot below.

Banks will receive a single check payment for multiple invoices. For Canadian clients this can be up to 50% of all payments.

 

The solution or way to handle this scenario is through the file format or layout.  The mock up the file layout on the left that’s what is currently in use.  This layout creates a payment per row.  So it doesn’t accurately create the 1 payment received but it creates 2 payments, one for each invoice.

 

But if it was structured in a way like on the right, then you can see that 1 Check payment for a total of $4162.75 applies to 2 invoices.  So that would correctly create 1 payment record in Zuora that would then apply to 2 invoices.
