For gift batches, each time you create and save a new gift batch, the settings from the Batch Header tab are automatically defaulted into the next new gift batch you create. For example, you create a new gift batch. You mark the Batch is recurring checkbox on the Batch Header tab and save the batch. The next time you create a new gift batch, this checkbox is automatically marked. This only affects new gift batches, not gift batches that are updated and saved.
Uncheck the Batch is recurring option and click Save. The next time that a new Gift Batch is created, this setting will be retained and the Batch is recurring option will not be checked.
