6.4.1 Cancellation Wizard

Some media campaigns are running for several months, therefore, it might be necessary to adjust or cancel individual campaign items or a complete media campaign. Please also refer to the 4.11 Optimizer. If you like to just cancel one invoice or one invoice item please refer to 6.4.2 Cancel an individual invoice or invoice item.


Prerequisite for Cancellations:

(This will avoid "Apex CPU time limit exceeded" error messages)

  • do not cancel Campaign Items that have not been invoiced, just delete or change them
  • delete Pre-Invoices manually
  • set the BillingStatus to what you expect after the cancellation



Navigate to the App Launcher and Open the Cancellation Wizard. To adapt the search field and other functions please have your admin study the following pages: 7.6.3 Customize your Finance Wizards.

Cancellation Types

Start Cancelation per Period
You are going to cancel the selected campaign items on an accrual basis. This means that depending on the number and run-time of your items many invoice documents could be created. For each period one cancellation invoice will be generated.

Start Cancelation Merge Period
You are going to cancel the selected campaign items to be merged over multiple periods. This means that depending on the number and run-time of your items for all affected periods only one cancellation invoice will be generated.

Start Cancelation Merge all
You are going to cancel the selected campaign items and combine those cancellations with any open invoice for this billing period. This means that depending on the number and run-time of your canceled and open items only one invoice will be generated.

Cancellation options can be configured by your Admin using a Feature Setting.  

Cancellation Example:

As you can see, there are a few changes in your media campaign.

  1. The campaign item "news.com_Homepage_Banner" was canceled successfully. The amount will be refunded and has a negative sign.
  2. There are two invoices canceled, as you can see the status. The first invoice concerns the month May (15.05.2013 till 31.05.2013) and the second one concerns the month June (01.06.2013 till 15.06.2013).
  3. There are three new pre-invoices generated. The first and second pre-invoice refers to the months May and June and includes the credit note. The third pre-invoice concerns June and contains all remaining campaign items.
