The Number of Consecutive Missed Payments calculates the number of missed payments on a recurring gift since the last payment was received. The number of payments is based on the Frequency of the recurring gift schedule. If any skipped transactions occur after the last payment was received, the calculation does not "skip" them and regards them as missed. The calculation does not "stop" at the Next Transaction Due Date.

For example, Martha Mellon has a $25 monthly recurring gift starting on 11/1/2015. Two payments have been received on 1/1/2016 and 4/1/2016. The Next Transaction Due Date is 7/1/2016.
