Subscriptions automatically renew by default so there should be no need to renew ahead of time.
However , we want to renew earlier , so we can prepaid the subscription for next year in this Financial year (Jul/17 - Jun/18) as we have already allocated the budget for it.
i was advised by an Adobe User Support, in order to achieve what we expected , we need to cancel the current subscription then re-apply for the subscription.
my Questions is , if we re-apply for the subscription in May before the end date (24 July 2017) , are we going to lose the rights of the previous subscription between now and 24 July? or it will be added up to the new subscription?
If you cancel you would lose the remaining time left on the subscription.
What we could do, is cancel the subscription on 24 May and create a partial refund for the 2 unused months. You could then sign up for a new subscription.
If you'd like to go ahead with this let me know as we'd need to process it manually and not via the automated online cancellation workflow.
