Hi. How can we help?

Editing items

Once items are created in Lightspeed Restaurant, you can always modify them from your Back Office to update details, such as the item’s price or description.

There are two ways to edit items. You can edit the entries directly in the table by selecting and editing them or you can use the Edit button next to the appropriate item to make detailed changes.

Editing item details

  1. Log in to the Back Office with your Lightspeed credentials.
  2. From the navigation menu, select Menu management > Items.
  3. Either update the entries directly in the table by clicking them or click the Edit button next to the appropriate item.
  4. Make the required changes. See Understanding item details for information on what can be edited.
  5. Click the Save button to save the changes.

Group production instructions on dockets Production instructions will be grouped together when the same item is ordered multiple times.
Get the price of this item at runtime from an external device

The price of this item is retrieved through an external weight scale. However, you can manually enter the weight of the item on the POS to get the associated price even without a scale.

Note: scale integrations are a legacy feature and our Support teams cannot currently assist with this.
