The way i do is to normally enter the transaction in the ledger, then
right click and select "Cédule" (sorry for the french word, i think the
english translation is "Schedule").

Another way is, in the accounts window, by going in the "Actions" menu,
"Scheduled transactions" (again, it may not be the exact english word)
submenu, and select "Scheduled transactions editor" (approximate english
word). A window pops up and you can add, remove or modify your scheduled

Hope this helps, and please forgive my poor english :-)
