As soon as you cancel a subscription or remove a product with a future contract effective date you are not able to update it as it is not shown anymore when creating a new order. To effectively update such a product you would need to delete the order and create a new one to get the changes effective. But you can only delete orders if no other order was created afterwards. So sometimes we need to redo a lot of orders to apply a change to one specific item. With amandements this was possible as you can see in this article: https://knowledgecenter.zuora.com/BC_Subscription_Management/Subscriptions/E_Changing_Subscriptions_Amendments/A_Create_Amendments/Update_a_Product_(Amendment)/Update_a_Product_on_Subscription_with_a_Future-dated_Remove This feature would be really helpful as subscriptions often change and we cannot always go with the described workaround and delete orders as usually with an order an invoice is created and then we even need to cancel invoices to proceed which is definetly not the correct way.

With the Manage Subscriptions/Amendments and the Delete Subscriptions/Amendments unchecked, a user cannot create or delete a subscriptions, etc. However the user is not notified of this lack of access until the end of the process, when he or she attempts to Activate the changes. It would be more user friendly if this warning appeared earlier on in the Order entry process. Thanks!
