Lightspeed makes it really simple and convenient to make quick fast changes to your menu, to apply these changes you just need to Sync your POS.
This can be frustrating & time consuming for large register venues so we have now built the ability to do this from Back Office, to all of your registers, automatically.
Note - Lightspeed will only sync your registers while they are not in use, if your staff are in the middle of performing a sale that register will not be synced. This will be highlighted by that register not having an up to date sync time. If this occurs, simply sync the register again when it's not in use.
