I have a membership contribution page that has an options for monthly and biannual periods. I'd like to offer members the option for auto renewal when their memberships are up. When I check the box allowing for recurring contributions on my contribution page config, I'm offered choices, one that doesn't make sense for a contribution explicitly used for membership. (I do have my contribution set up this way.) The problem is this option:
Supported recurring units* day week month year
Select recurring units supported for recurring payments.
For my specific problem, there is no biannual option. But more generally, if I had a membership type/ price set that was set for a period of 27 days, and I wanted to offer recurring payments, I'd want the recurring period to match exactly the length of the duration of the membership and happen after the 27th day. Am I doing something wrong or is this a design bug?
Why wouldn't people always want to automatically constrain their recurring payments with their membership length?
The period is already set by the duration of the membership. Isn't this redundant to be asked to set it again in the recurring contribution options?
