Multi-Dimensional Quoting (MDQ)

You can show a fixed-price subscription product in the quote line editor as one quote line broken into segments. Each segment represents a unit of time (quarter, month, year, or custom) and has pricing and a quantity independent of the line’s other segments. We call these products multi-dimensional quoting (MDQ) products. They’re useful if you want your sales reps to have detailed control over pricing specific units of time within one subscription.

In this video, we will go through the process of setting up MDQ products, and explain the functionalities with different Price Dimension examples. We will also highlight key considerations to be aware of while using MDQ products.


Here is agenda of session

  • What is Multi Dimensional Quoting

  5. Hi Amit
    I do have questions with regards to MDQ Quoting and would be greatful , if you can point me in the right direction .
    We have Price Dimensions on multiple products , however , we would prefer that when this is added to the Quote the Sales Person should not be able to decrease the quantity of Year 2/3 to a number lesser than the quantity in Year 1 .
    Year 1= 10
    Year 2 -= 10 or above and not below 10
    Year 3 = 10 or above and not below 10
    How can this be achieved .

    Many Thanks

  6. Hi
    How can I add the MDQ product to the quote without using the quote line editor. I want to create the segment using the Apex or custom quote.


  7. great content, May i kno whwy the contrcat line items are so different her, one line for the entire team and for the subsequent years one each?

  8. Great explaining. But we sell items as a bundle or package. Is there a way to apply MDQ segmentation to them as a whole? It is difficult for sales person to edit each line item.
