Refund bills are generated automatically for refundable fee items

When refundable fee items are added in the Permit bill and paid within the Permit fees, Cloudpermit now generates automatically a Refund bill for them when certain criteria is met. The Refund bill is generated in the Draft status for the municipality user so that they can check and correct it before confirming. When Refund bill is confirmed, a PDF receipt is automatically generated as well.

Refund bill generation is triggered automatically when

  • user changes the Workspace status to Finished OR
  • user completes an inspection, which has the option "Triggers refunds" checked in the Inspection configuration
