How dates are defined in Recurring Events

Hi Forum,

I hope someone can help me better understand how Dates for treated in a Recurring Event.

In my app. I have a recurring event in which a new data thing is created after 12 months. So under the “Start Date” I configured it to start after 12 months as seen below.

Now, when the event is triggered and a new data thing is created, I need to record the date that it is created. But when trying to set up the workflow in the recurring event, there’s no option for me to define the “Start date” as it’s creation date. So, the creation date as “Current date/time” as seen below

Here’s my question: In an Recurring Event, is the “Current date/time” the date in which the event is triggered (ie the Start date and every date in the frequency thereafter) ?
