Hi. How can we help?

Item scorecard

Advanced Insights is currently available to Lightspeed Restaurant customers in North America, Australia, and New Zealand. To get access to this feature, contact your Sales Account Manager or Lightspeed Support.

You can use an item scorecard to discover important sales information by item. View an item’s ranking over the last four weeks, its recent sales, and a graph of its top-selling servers. The item scorecard organizes this sales data into three tabs: Scorecard, Recent Sales, and Top Servers.

Accessing an item scorecard

To access an item's scorecard:

  1. Sign in to your Advanced Insights dashboard.
  2. At the top of the navigation menu, click the Locations drop-down and select a location.
  3. In the main navigation menu, click Menu.
  4. Click item name to view its scorecard.

Scorecards can be accessed from the Repeat Customer Favorites and Most Popular tabs on the Menu page.

Understanding the Scorecard tab

The Scorecard tab organizes an item's sales data into a graph and table. The graph gives you a visual representation of an item's sales trends for the last month. The Highlights table lists the item's top-selling servers, as well as the customers who most recently purchased the item. You can also click on a server's name to view their Server scorecard.


Understanding the Recent sales table

Visit the Recent sales tab to discover which guests most recently purchased the item, who served them, the total number of covers (table size), and a breakdown of the other items ordered on the same check. 

Each row in the Recent sales table represents a single check, and each bar graph color represents a different menu item on that check. Click Show legend to see the item breakdown.

For a description of each column, view the table below.
