Automatic Refund of Security Deposit
Is there a way to automatically refund security deposits?
@Brian-Mackert - I don't think there is a way at the moment, but that's a great feature request idea! I'd love to see that!
Of course - it should be optional though. Since sometimes there are deductions to be made on the refund.
We have something coming around this very soon. Stay tuned. It will not quite be fully automated returns out of the gate, but will bring more visibility and make open deposits far easier to review and return. We'll continue to iterate on it and will get to full automation, but we want to be careful with this one given the risk of a user accidentally returning something they didn't intend to.
If full automation is your desire, then I'd submit a feature request, since we'll consider that a separate step. But what we have coming may reduce the need for this somewhat. We look forward to the feedback on it once it's out.
@Jonathan-Murray Any updates on this feature?
Yes, we released an improved security deposit management system back in May. You can read about it in the Product Updates section of MyVR.
Regarding fully automated deposit refunds, this is still on our todo list. There are no updates on that right now, but if we release this feature it will definitely be announced on our Product Updates section. We generally don't give updates on new features in the MyVR Community.
