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 manually adjust their permissions, or you can simply assign them the desired user group and associated permissions, such as manager or bartender.
If you would like to add several users at once you have the possibility to 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 the POS user name, the user's first and last name.
- Select a user group or select individual user roles.
- Select Add user.
POS user settings
|User name||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.|
User roles (User permissions)
Only available if no Group is selected.
|Identifier for local orders||Only used with Drinkotek integration. They have identifiers within their system and this is used to link a specific key to a User.|
|iButton ID||Only used for Dallas key integration; you need to enter the dallas key number in this field to make sure 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 device profile 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.
