When setting up an Online Express donation form for Recurring Gifts, is it possible to set a future start date for these gifts?

When setting up an Online Express donation form for Recurring Gifts, is it possible to set a future start date for these gifts?  For example, can donors submit a Recurring Gift donation in January but only have the instalments collected from July onwards?
No, when setting up the Recurring Gift date frequencies there are only options available to collect on a specific date or on a specific day of the week.  This will always identify the closest relevant date as the first instalment.  There is no functionality within Online Express for this to start from a specific date or month.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Create a new Online Express donation form.
  2. On the Extras tab, tick the option to include Recurring Gifts.
  3. When adding gift frequencies, note the options available do not allow a starting on date to be selected.
