Scenario: Correcting a payment plan mid-term¶
Several monthly and quarterly payment plans were recently (2 weeks ago) configured with the ‘annual’ period, resulting in the DD payments for members being each year, rather than each month/quarter. Members have renewed/joined since that change. All have paid their initial DD instalment but are not being charged until next year for their next instalment.

Delete future payments
Unlock existing requested payment
Edit existing payment
Remove reference to membership
Check first new payment is marked as “2 of 12”
Go back to existing payment
Replace reference to membership
Check all 12 payments in place
It works because the legacy_uid is set to /example/member/abc123/–1 for the first instance, and the first instance date is still correct. Therefore it gets skipped by the find_or_create in create_scheduled_payments and carries on, creating the remaining ones on the correct dates.
