Hi All, Use case: Order lines have several stages of fulfillment (with a span of several months) before it can be billed. Yet we should be able to amend the order (add line, delete line, add discount) during fulfillment life cycle. As order lines gets fulfilled, it should be billed. Billing schedule is running monthly, so every month only those order line items will be billed which are fulfilled. I am assuming that I need to contract the order because amendment is needed during the life cycle of order fulfillment. Is that right ?. Activation of order is required for contract the order. How to stop the billing of an activated order line item during fulfillment life cycle. ? For discount amendment do I need to make the quantity to zero (delete) for that product and add it again and give discount ?. Appreciate the help. More

How does Salesforce CPQ for Communities differ from Salesforce CPQ? Is the functionality and setup the same? If so, how would I 'hide' certain functionality such as discounting? More

Is there a way to automatically set the quantity based on a field on the Account and then increase that number by a percentage, year over year, in an MDQ quote? For example, let's say we have a customer that has 10,000 users. So, year 1 in the MDQ quote will have a qty of 10,000. The customer expects a 10% growth, year over year, over the next 5 years. So the qty on year 2 would be 10% higher than year 1 and year 3 would be 10% higher than year 2 and so on. Any thoughts on how to do this so that the users don't have to do the math and manually enter the qty for every line item? More

Is there a way to clone a quote and also reset some fields so my validation rules aren't triggered? Example: Quote #Q-000520 is Closed Won but I want to quote the same things to someone else. I'd like to Clone with Related to keep all the quote lines with product configuration, but want the Status to reset to Draft and Approvals to clear and want to change the related Opportunity record. #CPQAskAnExpert More
