I have this same question. Neither reply fully answers the whole question. Once the Recurring Journal entry is set up, as unscheduled, and you go into the Recurring List and choose it, how do you enter it? There is no 'save' button. The only things you can do are 'save template', 'reverse' or 'cancel'.
Please tell me what I'm missing?

Hi there, MaxOnsight.
When you don't have the Use option, the transaction is set to Scheduled. You have put down a date to when it will reoccur.
If you want to modify the recurring transactions, you can check these references:
