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.
