Brightwheel has begun releasing our new billing platform for new users. If the content in this article does not match what you see in your account, please click here for related content in your account.
The Deposits Report provides administrators information about the deposits made by brightwheel into their bank account. The table provided online will display each of the deposits along with the:
Deposit date: The date the funds were deposited in your account
Deposit amount: Total amount of the deposit including payments less processing fees and any refunds, adjustments, or failed payments
Account the funds will be deposited into: This includes the last four digits of the deposit account
Status of the deposit: Current status of the deposit including Paid, Pending, In_transit, Canceled, or Failed
Please Note: A deposit will be pending until it is submitted to the bank, at which point it becomes in_transit. It will then change to paid if the transaction goes through. If it does not go through successfully, the status will be changed to failed or canceled.
This report can be viewed from the Billing portion or Reports section of brightwheel online. By default, the report will list all of the deposits made to your account. To further filter this report use the Start and End date fields and click Create Report.
Each deposit can be expanded to view all payments contained in that deposit. This will include the transaction date, student's name, payment method, status, fee, and amount deposited.
Export this report to get a more detailed version of this report for the date range selected.
