The Reset Recurring Gift Date plug-in updates all recurring gifts with a Starting on date for the transaction schedule that is less than the gift date. The gift date for these gifts will be updated to equal the Starting on date.

If your software is hosted through Blackbaud Hosting Services, refer to How to run a plug-in in a hosted environment.
