About menus

Menus in Lightspeed Restaurant Back Office characterize your business and are essential for determining the items available to order at the POS. An organized menu structure simplifies user interactions on the POS, resulting in more efficient service.

Assign each menu to a device to easily toggle between configurations on the POS, allowing users to access certain menus at certain times of the day or in certain areas of the establishment. Import menus to add multiple menus with items simultaneously and export menus to save and use the data outside the Back Office.

If you have multiple business locations, you can quickly share menus with your other business locations.
