Billing System Properties
You can drive the functioning of certain features in the application from the fields available in Billing System Properties.
From Billing Console, click Billing System Properties from the Setup tile.
The following table lists the fields available for edit, their significance and the functionalities they impact.
|Field||Description||Pre-requisite for Functionalities|
|Allow Billing Preference Override||A default Billing Preference is applicable to all account org-wide. Select this check box to allow overriding the default Billing Preference.|
|Billing Org-Wide Email Address|
Enter the email address which you want to use for sending invoice, dunning, and payment emails. You need to create a record for the email address in Organization-Wide Email Addresses Object.
If you do not provide a default email address name here, the system will send emails using the email address of the user who is generating invoices.
If you see sender's email address as email@example.com on invoice emails, go to Setup > Administration Setup > Email Administration > Deliverability and clear Enable Sender ID compliance checkbox. This way you can send emails on behalf of the email address you set on Billing Org-Wide Email Address.
|Create 0 FeeAmount BS|
Select this checkbox to control the billing schedule generation for asset line items with 0.00 net price. Default value is True.
|Create redundant Billing Schedules||For a product with invoiced Billing Schedules, if you perform a mid-cycle amend without changing the amount, redundant credit and debit Billing Schedules that cancel each other are created. Select the check box to enable the creation of such redundant Billing Schedules.|
|Currency Decimal Places||Enter the number of decimal places to scale the currency fields.|
|Custom Billing Plan Item Percent API Name||Enter the API name of the field used to calculate the percentage amount of the Billing Plan Items and Billing Plan Template Items. To leverage this functionality for existing billing plans and billing plan templates, refer to Post-Installation Configurations.|
|Custom Billing Term API Name|
Enter the API name of the custom term field to be used by the Billing engine while generating the billing schedules or amounts for the legacy assets. The field must have 10 decimals for the billing engine to generate the correct fee amounts.
If this setting is blank, Billing uses the out-of-the-box Billing Term field value for the computation.
In February '23, do not use this setting, which is added in preparation of a future functionality.
|Generate Invoice Documents||Select this option to generate an invoice document in the required format (DOC, DOCX, RTF or PDF) during the Invoice Generation Batch job. |
You can set the format from the field Invoice Output Format on the Billing Preference.
|Invoice Email Delivery|
|Invoice Email Delivery Period||This period accounts for invoices generated within the specified number of days from the day of Invoice Run. For example, if the Invoice Email Delivery period is set to 5, the invoices generated in the past 5 days (with Status Approved and Delivery Status Pending) from the day of Invoice Run will qualify for the email delivery.|
|Invoice Generation Batch Size|
Enter the number of billing schedules to process in one batch. The billing schedules can belong to different accounts. The invoice run batch job creates invoices and credit memos by selecting billing schedules with Status as Pending Billing and Ready for Invoice Date with less than or equal to Process Through Date.
Ensure that you enter a value less than or equal to 999.
|Tax Level||Enter the object name to which you want to apply taxes by default. You can mention either Account or Product object for the default tax applicability.|

You can set the format from the field Invoice Output Format on the Billing Preference.
|Same Day Cancellation|
Select this option if you want the Asset Cancellation applicable on the same day. For example, while performing Termination on an Asset you enter the Termination Date as 5/11/2016. If you select Same Day Cancellation, the cancellation will be effective from 5/11/2016. Otherwise, the cancellation will be in effect a day later which is 5/12/2016.
Same Day Cancellation is applicable by default. Clear the checkbox to apply cancellations after a day.
This setting is deprecated. Conga Billing uses Same Day Cancellation from CPQ Config System Properties.

You can see the records under Activity History related list on the related Invoice/Credit Memo detail page. For details, refer Credit Memo Detail.

Select this option to delete the forecast schedules when the actual billing schedules are created.
Note: Do not select this option if you want to retain the forecast billing schedules linked to the proposal document.
|No Proration on Renewal|
When performing asset-based operations, select this option to consider the start date of the asset renewal for alignment of the billing schedules instead of the original start date set at the Quote/Proposal.
You can use setting Ignore Renewal Proration Setting at the Billing Preference to control the effect of this global custom setting No Proration on Renewal on the associated asset line items.

Enter the number of items you want Conga Billing to process in each batch during forecast generation. As suggested by Salesforce, the maximum batch size can be 2000. When the forecasting job is executed using the Apttus_Billing.BillingService.forecastBilling(proposal.Id, false) API in asynchronous mode, the Billing logic generates forecast in batches with the batch size configured in this custom setting (Forecast Generation Batch Size).
