The Ignore payment schedules older than number of days setting is very integral in making sure that past due payment dates are ignored throughout the school year. Without this setting, past due payment due dates will be due at the time a person fills out a contract agreement. This can be very important to consider for mid-year enrollments.
For example, if you have a family enroll on December 1st during a school year you may not want the monthly payment schedule with due dates for July, August, September, October, and November to be due at the time someone signs their contract. If you make sure the Ignore payment schedules older than number of days setting is active you can make sure that those payment dates are ignored and the person signing the contract will only need to pay future dates.
To further the example, if you add 5 days to the Ignore payment schedules older than number of days setting, 5 days after each payment is due it will be ignored. In our example above, as of July 6th (5 days) after the first payment is due, it will be ignored. On August 6th both July and August payments would be ignored, etc.
