Auto approval for whitelisted riders



  • Official comment

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for your suggestion - we like it. When we implemented instant-book, we decided to keep things simple initially and then see what refinements we needed to make. I think you've hit on a dynamic that we do need to address; being able to let reliable passengers instant-book but have new or poorly rated passengers come through the regular request/approve flow.

    Your approach is slightly different to what we'd envisioned. We thought it would make sense to be able to say, "Let any passenger with more than X trips and a rating of at least Y to instant-book". Do you think this would provide you with enough certainty to let you use instant-book?

    I agree with Chris. This would be a great feature and something that I was looking for as well. White listing during the passenger review process would be easiest.

    Great idea, it would be super simple if my regulars could do this. This is the main reason I don't use the auto-book feature. Good thinking! :)

    I would definately auto approve people I have already met & had the pleasure of driving. This would be an awesome improvement.
