When we create a Pledge Schedule or Recurring Gift Schedule, we can create a schedule for the database to automatically process the donor's credit/debit card for their gift or payment.
Auto Processing happens shortly after midnight, in the early morning hours of the day it is scheduled. For this reason, we need to schedule auto-process gifts at least one day in advance. For example, if today is November 28 at 9:00 am and we schedule a gift for November 28, the gift will not auto-process because the window for auto-processing has already occurred for the day. We need to schedule the gift for November 29th instead.
