From the Back Office, create a user account for every employee that will access Restaurant POS. For accurate reporting and management, we recommend that you create a dedicated user account for each employee.
When you add a POS user, you can either adjust their permissions manually or assign them the desired user group and associated permissions, such as manager or bartender.
If you want to add several users at once, you can import users from a *CSV file.
- Log in to the Back Office with your Lightspeed Restaurant account credentials.
- From the main navigation menu, select Configuration > Users > POS users.
- Select Add a new user.
- Enter the POS user settings, such as their username and first and last names.
- Select a user group or individual user permissions.
Note: Selecting a user group will automatically give the user all permissions assigned to the group.
- Click Add user to create the user.
POS user settings
|Username||The name that appears for the user throughout the POS.|
|First name||The user’s first name.|
|Last name||The user’s last name.|
|Group||User group to which the user can be assigned. All groups created in Configuration > Users > POS user groups are available. By selecting a group, all rights assigned to the group are automatically assigned to the user. See About POS user groups for information.|
|Identifier for local orders||Use this field to assign a specific identifier to a user for the Drinkotec integration or Pay at Table feature.|
POS user permissions
Only available if no Group is selected.
|iButton ID||Only used for Dallas key integration; you need to enter the Dallas key number in this field to ensure iKentoo can match this User with their key.|
You can always edit a POS user if you ever wish to adjust their access permissions or need to archive (deactivate) the user.
Assign POS users to a configuration so that it is only visible in the K Series app for these assigned users.
If you would like to add several users to your Back Office at once or export data to save and print employee documentation beyond the Back Office, see Importing or exporting POS users.
