Support for Multiple Termed Agreements (SFDCDEV-210)

Termed agreements can be configured from and display on the Add/Modify plans page for an opportunity. From the Add/Modify plans page, you may either commit the termed agreement(s) to Aria, or save and exit without committing the agreement(s) to Aria.  

You can also view, edit, or cancel termed agreements for an account from the account plan overview page.

Updating a Billing Group within an Opportunity Updates the Billing Group for the Account

This feature prevents billing group updates specific to an opportunity from changing the billing group information on the account. Changes made to the billing group on an opportunity will not update the billing group on the account until after the opportunity has been committed. Once committed to Aria, the billing group updates in Aria and in Aria for Salesforce at the account level.  


Support for Salesforce Console (SFDCDEV-213)

This feature provides minimal support to allow teams to use the console as their primary Salesforce interface. Once you login to Salesforce with your console credentials, you are now able to interact with Aria for Salesforce functionality. 


Aria for Salesforce Fixes

All special characters were not supported in the plan search in the Add plans page (TICKET-515)

Aria for Salesforce has been updated to include @ # $ % ^ & * () _ - + ? ~" including "/ and ." special characters.  

Standard rate schedule was still displaying when defining custom rate schedule on opportunity (TICKET-523) 

When defining a custom rate schedule on an opportunity, the standard rate schedule was still displaying. This occurred due to the custom rate schedule not getting stamped on the Account Plan object.  The code logic was updated to ensures that if a user selects a custom rate schedule, it must populate on the Account Plan object.

Apex heap size error was occurring when adding plans (TICKET-524)

Adding plans (~ 30) via the new interface with 25 services each was hitting the Salesforce limitation. The approach has been updated to not count services when adding new plans. Instead, plans are added with their respective services from default rates.

DKK prices in the Overview screen displaying incorrectly (TICKET-530)

Price for plans was displayed as 0.00 for few cases in the Overview screen. The price was calculated on all services instead of a recurring service for the same plan due to an incorrect calculation. The logic has been updated to calculate prices from the recurring service.

Account sync from Salesforce to Aria was not working correctly (TICKET-542) 

Account was not syncing from Aria to Aria for Salesforce. The issue was occurring due to an SOQL error which has been corrected by updating the query for person accounts. 

Account plan was listed twice on account (TICKET-543) 

Account plan was listed twice in the related list on account. In case of plan cancellation, the status of the plan was updating to "cancelled" immediately, even if the opportunity was not committed. Thus, it was listing the plan with other active and cancelled plans in Account plan section. A new status of "Cancel" has been introduced if the account plan is cancelled in Aria for Salesforce but not yet committed to Aria.
