How to setup recurring journal in X3?

Let’s take an example for creation of recurring journals aimed at monthly rental expenses. Primarily, we need to setup the recurring journals but prior to this a template journal should be created which would act as the reference document during journal creation.
When a recurring journal is generated it will be an exact replica of the template journal using the same Entry Transaction, the site, account postings and analytical postings. We have a template journal setup for this example where the accounts used are the rent expense and the Bank account (refer screenshot below)
