Preconfigure DNS records prior to domain transfer?

Hello, I am sure this question has been answered somewhere, but can't find it?
I am to transfer a working prod domain from another registrar to Godaddy, however since it can take upwards of 7 days, one cannot just wait for the transfer in order to created DNS records. So how can I pre configure the DNS records of a domain in order to have no down time?

 

Thanks

Re: Preconfigure DNS records prior to domain transfer?

You can add DNS Hosting before transferring the domain.

Also you can check with your current registrar if you can manually approve the transfer after it's been initiated, if so the transfer can take a few hours instead of a few days.
