The following section describes existing features that are changed (or are no longer supported) in this release.
Ability to Hide Child Cost Types in Price Waterfall

Updated Billing Schedules Post Increment

Ability to Show Original Asset Start Date after Terminating an Asset

Ability to Replace a Collaborated Product
In this release, CPQ enables collaborator to replace a product for which the collaboration request was initiated. Now, if the collaborator replaces a collaborated product, separate line items for replaced or newly added products are created on the parent and the child carts. The Sales rep is notified of the changes the collaborated submit. Once the Sales rep merges the configuration, the changes are reflected in both the carts.
Automatic Deletion Updates in Collaboration Request
In this release, CPQ automatically updates the child cart after the Sales rep deletes a product from the parent cart.
Revoked the Requirement of Modify All Access Permission
In this release, CPQ gives the administrator the ability to define access permission to enable cancel, delete and abandon actions for a Sales rep on a collaboration request without enabling Modify All access permission. This also controls the impact of the Sales rep actions on the collaboration request. Specifically, the impact of canceling the collaboration request, deleting the collaborated product and abandoning the cart.
Support for Match in Location in CSCR
In this release, CPQ supports location-based matching in Client-Side Constraint Rules. Now, location can be used as a factor when firing rules for products. Also, CPQ associates the location of the condition product with the auto-included product when you use locations to search for products on the Catalog page.
Auto-included Products Saved in Favorite Configuration
In this release, CPQ saves the auto-included products as well along with all the products when you save any configuration as favorite.
Message Display on Bundle Structure Change
In this release, CPQ displays a message to run a Bundle Maintenance Batch Job after you change the bundle structure. Bundle Structure changes include changes in options or option groups.
Changes to Shared Option Group Reflect in Associated Bundle
In this release, CPQ updates all the bundle structures associated with a shared option group automatically when you modify the shared option group.
