Duplicate transaction "cheat" creates a problem

My commercial bank is not supported for linking with Stessa, therefore I must enter recurring transactions manually. I used the duplicate button to create them for the year, as they are recurring insurance payments that remain constant. However, on the first page of Stessa when I login, it shows that I spent $10,000 in January on insurance. When I entered that much in recurring transactions, but post dated them, so those expenses should occur in the month I dated them for, not the date I entered them. Does that make senses?
