New Features

The following  feature is new to Conga Billing in this release:

Limited Support for Ready for Billing Date Field for Existing Implementations

In this patch release, Conga Billing provides limited support for existing customers that have already implemented use cases leveraging the Ready for Billing Date. This field is not meant for new implementations. 

If you are using Ready for Billing Date, consider the following guard rails: 

  • If your new order starts from 1/1/2020 and ends on 12/31/2020, and you do not perform inflight order changes, your Ready for Billing Date must be set as 1/1/2020. This is to ensure that your billing amount tallies with the invoiced amount. If you do not set your Ready for Billing Date as 1/1/2020, the billing amount will be calculated incorrectly after you perform Asset-based Operations. 
  • If your new order starts from 1/1/2020 and ends on 12/31/2020, and you perform inflight order changes on 1/12/20, then ensure that you set your Ready for Billing Date as 1/12/2020. This is to ensure that your billing amount tallies with your invoiced amount. 
  • If your Asset-based Order starts from 3/15/2020 and you do not perform any inflight changes, your Ready for Billing Date must be as 3/15/2020. This is to ensure that your billing amount tallies with your invoiced amount. 
  • If your Asset-based Order starts from 3/15/2020 and you perform an inflight order change on 3/20/20, your Ready for Billing Date must be set as 3/20/2020.This is to ensure that your billing amount tallies with your invoiced amount. 

If the Ready for Billing Date is different from the Asset Start Date and you have performed multiple Asset-based Operations, the total amount of all the invoiced schedules will not match the Asset TCV. 

Conga recommends that you do not use the Ready for Billing Date field for new customer implementations.
