Oftentimes instead of sending an invoice as a one time charge, you need to send an email to a client on a schedule.

Since the first invoice has already been created, the start date should be set to the next date this particular invoice should recur on. Generally the start date should be a date in the future.

The list of recurring invoices displays each recurring invoice set up in your system. Recurring invoices may be
stopped or deleted from the
Options button in the list of recurring invoices.
