Is it wrong if we use present tense after pendant instead future

This relates to:
Using Le Futur after "quand" and "pendant que" instead of Le Présent -

Bonjour Gomathi,
Here is a link to an explanation of concordance des temps:
https://french.kwiziq.com/my-languages/french/glossary/132
Now to your question at hand: this phrase is from the lesson ---> «This rule also applies to the expression pendant que (while) WHEN USED in a future context:»
You may be asking the reason I quoted this particularly part of the lesson; well, if we take a look at the two words capitalized in the phrase «WHEN USED», this indicates, to me, that there are other possibilities besides the future tense when «pendant que» can be used, i.e. the present perhaps.
I am sure that if this is incorrect, either Aurélie or Laura or another of the Kwiziq team members will also post something with the correction.
Bonne chance,
