UI in core for processing refunds
We looked at adding the ability to process refunds via the UI at the sprint.
We looked at
- Changing the existing record refund form (Additional Payment form) to provide the option of processing the refund if offered by the processor if a check box was selected
- Changing the existing record refund form (Additional Payment form) to provide the option of processing the refund if offered by the processor if a differently named button was pressed
- Having a second action for 'Process Refund' or similar
Opinions at Barcelona were pretty evenly divided between the 3!
A couple of things that might make a difference
@JoeMurray was keen that it be a case of the option showing if ALL payments on a contribution could be refunded. In the edge case of payments from more than one processor the submit refund option would not show
@JoeMurray agreed that it is OK to ALWAYS show 'record payment' & 'record refund' as opposed to currently it only shows 'add payment' if there it a balance to pay & add 'record refund' if there is a balance to refund. However, we need to be able to overpay & over refund - I'm going to work on this issue & seeing the UI afterwards (just having the links more often visible) might affect what people think 'makes sense' - issue for that is #86
