Release Notes 103
In preparation for NCE we added various quality of life improvements:
• Subscription management experience is now more intuitive and transparent. Users can no longer attempt to adjust the configuration of a suspended subscription, which helps prevent orders with combinations of actions that some vendors cannot properly support. It also builds the foundation for the new upcoming capabilities to schedule subscription changes in the future (e.g. on renewal).
• Expiry notification for trial subscriptions now warns the user that the subscription may upgrade to a paid
version automatically depending on the vendor.
• Customers are now automatically asked to accept the latest Microsoft Customer Agreement version
when buying with an outdated version (from earlier than 01.01.2020).
We have also been actively adding new things to your business performance reports, some of which we have already announced separately. Here is a recap of the recent updates:
• New reports for sellers with key financial indicators and their breakdown, revenue trends, and forecasts.
• New reports for distributors and sellers on adoption and migration of end-customers to new Azure offers.
• Seller cost in the usage report for sellers.
• Currency switcher (EUR, USD, or the de-facto currency of the invoice) in usage report for sellers and end customers.
