Support for specific trigger date on charges with orders

I saw that there is a current limitation where orders doesn't support the use of "specific trigger dates" on charges. When do you plan to address this? We won't be able to move to orders in production until that is addressed, since a large part of our business needs different trigger dates on each charge (to reflect different installation dates). I'm mainly trying to get a date so we can plan releases internally. Smiley Happy Thanks!

Re: Support for specific trigger date on charges with orders

Hi, we are currently targeting this for late Q1 2018/Q2 and are discussing design now.  It will follow a similar pattern as per today where you provide the dates to a Pending "Order" and would "Activate" the relevant Subscriptions.

 

One of the things we'd love to solve at the same time is the ability to provide a null date for Specific Date, for example, but we are still in discussion on the impact of this.

 

Do reach out if any questions on this.

Also just for clarification purposes for the rest of the community.  Order Metrics is less affected by this, since it still allows you to do Pending Subscriptions, but will simply generate Order Metrics only when the Sub is fully activated.

 

Its full Orders this affects more since when you create a Subscription, the API will force you to provide all trigger dates.
