Lets check this by one example.
We have configured “Document Type” for Invoice subscription. We can have any objects as per our requirement. Here we are trying to create Invoice so when we create new invoice, it will take Invoice date as current date.

After above configuration, we are going to creat a subscription record now. We have configured something like, for selected invoice, it will create monthly invoices i.e. one copy per month. Once we click on Process button, Cron job has been created for this subscription record, and cron job will take care of this.
