Setting up Staff Level Order Control


Keep your staff focused on their orders. Normally, all of your staff get to see and edit all open orders on the Point of Sale - however, you have the option to enable your staff to see only the orders they created under My Orders.


Your staff will still be able to see orders created by other staff if needed - but they will be prevented from editing other users’ orders unless they are admin. 


This results in a more accurate report of staff sales performance for each staff member.


The Staff Level Order Control add-on makes this all possible.

Frequently Asked Questions


Can I allow my staff to be able to filter their own orders as well as see other orders?

Yes you can. Once this add-on is enabled, they will get the option to view just their orders under My Orders and also see other orders under Orders. They, however, cannot edit other orders unless they are given admin permission.


How do I give my staff admin access so they can edit other orders?

You can easily manage user permissions and settings from the Back Office under the People page.



What's my next step?


Since we’re on the subject of orders, did you know that you can organise your store layout and assign orders to tables? The Tables add-on allows your staff to see at a glance: which tables have pending orders, what those orders are, and which tables have been waiting too long. Give it a go!


Did you know that you can manage user permissions on Lightspeed This is a great way to delegate responsibilities and limit access to more sensitive functions.


No more excel spreadsheets for you - start tracking your labour with the Time and Attendance Add-on. This will enable your staff to clock in & out on Lightspeed with their PIN.


Make the most of your stock and products. Record wastage so you’re always aware of what gets wasted, who has wasted it, and why.
