I have purchased a Eurail Global Senior pass. It is good for 4 trips in one month. I have plans for 2 routes at this point:
4/29/2022 - Frankfurt to Basel
5/9/2022 - Amsterdam to Paris (reservations needed)
Should I activate before I get to Frankfurt? Can I make the reservation for second trip before activation?

There's no need to activate early. I usually don't activate before I'm sure I'm going to travel. The thing is, if you change plans and forget to deactivate your travel day, then you loose a travel day (it can be fixed by customer support, but it's a hassle).
You can make reservations without activating.
AND; here in EUR we use logical order: first day, then month, then year. This may also lead to utter confusion. We have also learnt to count till 24 and have no am/pm.
I just ordered my pass and found this thread.
I was going to ask about if I need to activate the pass to make reservations. I see above that rvdborgt answered that I don't. So would you be able to give an example step by step of how to make the reservation?
Do I enter it on the mobile pass?
Do I need to give the pass number(sent by email) to the train company.
Sorry if this is all basic stuff but the planning of this is overwhelming me a bit. Hope you can help.
