Contract Item Recurring Billing needs a checkbox to prevent billing on activation

In situations where SaaS licenses are sold on an eCommerce site along with hardware that needs to be shipped, the first year of SaaS license is brought in to Acumatica as a sales order.  The contract then needs to be setup with prepaid recurring billing contract that will automatically generate invoices a month prior to the end of the license period. Currently, activation of the contract will generate an invoice that duplicates the charge that came from the eCommerce site.  This would be a simple change for Acumatica development team to provide a checkbox that determines whether the prepaid recurring billing item is billed or not upon activation.

    Just curious, rather than using the recurring charge, can't you set a renewal charge instead? That way you get a zero priced invoice when you activate the contract. 30 days prior to the expiration of the contract, you run the renewal process which generates an invoice for the renewal of the contract at the amount you want.
