I've "posted" a recurring reminder and now I'm unable to "unpost" it, it is possible?

I would like to re-ask this question--sometimes I've posted a payment reminder only to change my mind and decide that I want to wait for a certain deposit to be made into my account before this payment is posted to my account. Right now, I have to delete the payment and create a new reminder. Would be so helpful if I could simply click "unpost"

i'd like to add a comment here to show interest. although, i don't think its going to make it to the top of the list.
i like to post payments WAY ahead of time. sometimes, i get trigger happy. unposting would be a very positive feature. in a previous version of CCB, i could edit the reminder instance and it would actually give me the option to post again. the actual use case here was that i posted a reminder transaction. i went to the registry and decided not to post it yet (balance unavailable or whatever reason). i would delete the instance (for this case, lets say a 10/1 instance of a reminder). then i would go to the recurring transaction, do an edit (without actually changing anything), click save, and it would give me the option to post the reminder again.

however, lately this hasn't worked for a number of theories (although i cannot vouch any of them are true). a few months ago, during the data backup scene, there may have been some data integrity triggers that changed with the migration to a new data backend. OR with regular application maintenance, updates are common and this could have been a secondary or tertiary effect of an update. OR Chrome updated and something about using chrome for this is not letting it do what i want it to do. OR the elves in the magic box that make things appear on the screen are playing a trick on me.

either way, the feature (either through a workaround or deliberate) to have a recurring reminder become 'post-able' again after removing it from the registry would be an awesome feature to have.

however, it is a lot of work to make things look easy. the transaction of moving an instance from the reminder list to the registry tables in the database is an easy post. to delete it is to remove it (i assume) from those tables. there does not exist a trigger to re-establish that instance of a reminder in the reminder tables and (once again assuming) that's because each individual reminder is its own line item in the reminder table. that's probably why recurring reminders have an 'end date' because there's no such thing as an infinite table in database. although they can get so large you'd think so.

after all that banter, and thinking through the nerd-dom of data tables (of which much is irrelevant to many i'm sure), there would be a cool feature.
