Hi. How can we help?

About Items (Inventory)

Visit the Items page to see an overview of all inventory items in the Inventory module for Lightspeed Restaurant. Products and ingredients here are automatically imported from Back Office. From the Items page, you can manually link items to a preferred supplier or change an item’s measurement type (e.g., set whether an item should be measured by volume, weight, or individual units). 


You cannot add, remove, or change the names of items directly from this page. To add, edit, or delete items, do so from Back Office via Menu management > Items, and changes will be automatically imported into Inventory. For more detailed instructions, visit About items.
