Hi. How can we help?

Adding floor plans and tables

Floor plans can be used to reflect the layout of your restaurant or to organize tables into different environments for ease of use (e.g., quick-service restaurant with Takeaway and Dine-In groups).
Floor plans are essential for businesses with table service as they are used for orders and billing as well as seating. Set a number of seats for each table in the Back Office to split checks by seat on the POS.

Visit the following sections for details on adding floor plans:

  • Adding floor plans: Add floor plans with single or multiple tables with the same settings for all tables per floor plan.
  • Adding tables: Once a floor plan has been created, add tables used for orders and billing.

  1. Log in to the Back Office with your Lightspeed Restaurant credentials.
  2. From the main navigation menu, select Configuration > Settings > Floor plans.
  3. Click Add.
