About this Guide

The Order Management on Salesforce User Guide is designed to provide customer sales and support representatives with information for managing the life of a generated order before it creates or updates an asset. This guide covers the major features that are provided with the Apttus Order Management license, including changes to in-flight orders, partial orders from contract price agreements, and management of customer purchase orders. Many of the topics in this guide covers tasks that can be considered part of an overall workflow for Apttus purchase and revenue management products — therefore familiarity with Apttus Configure Price Quote (CPQ) products is highly encouraged to understand and execute Order Management concepts and tasks.
