Hi. How can we help?

Draft Receipts Report

The Draft Receipts report shows all receipts that were printed before payment was taken. Each row in the table represents a single order. This report helps you to identify and review receipts that were issued before payment was finalized, and can be used to print receipts, cancel receipts, and assess discrepancies or corrections made to an order.

Accessing the Draft Receipts Report

To access and generate the Draft Receipts Report:

  1. Log in to the Back Office with your Lightspeed Restaurant credentials.
  2. Select Reports > Reports from the navigation bar.
  3. Click Draft Receipts Report in the Account Reports section.
  4. Use the drop-down menu and calendar icon to change the report's time period.


Printing and filtering receipts

Print or zero in on specific receipts by using the following options in the Draft Receipts Report:

  • Use the Search field to find a particular receipt. Searchable information includes Account name, Amount, Tender, Created by, Paid to, Device, Account, and Reference.
  • Use the Show_entries drop-down menu to choose how many receipts should appear on a single page.
  • Filter receipts by tag using the available drop-down if there are tags associated with specific device profiles in your Configurations. Note: this option does not appear if no tags are set up.
  • To print single or multiple receipts, select the receipt(s) using the checkbox in the same row and click Print selected receipts.
  • To download the report as a spreadsheet, click Export Receipts CSV > select your device (Mac or PC) > Export.

Viewing and managing receipt details

From the Draft Receipts Report, click on any receipt to see more details. From here, you can perform various actions and see more information specific to your chosen transaction.

Note: This action is not available for Lightspeed Restaurant accounts based in Germany.

Be selective when adding transactions, canceling receipts, or changing payment types. Manipulating receipts after the end of the business day may invalidate reports already printed by the POS since those existing reports will no longer match the back-end data.
