Hi. How can we help?

Release notes for Jan 2 to Jan 13

Lightspeed Retail POS (R-Series) web

New: We’ve added a new Advanced search option for customer searching, allowing you to “force search” a particular field should a general search not return the expected results.

Improved: When creating a new work order, customer contact fields now benefit from the new customer search, and searching either home, mobile, or work phone number will search all three fields to help prevent customer duplication.

Improved: Admin users will now be able to view external IP address information for all events in the Event Logs. 

Improved: Customer searches using company information will now return faster and more accurate results. 

Improved: New supported image formats (WebP, GIF,JP2) can now be returned as JPEG or PNG when integrating with external services.  

Improved: UPC/EAN starting with reserved prefixes (22,23,24,25) will do an exact SKU search for items before searching through their respective documents (quotes, gift cards, work orders and sales).

Improved: New import logic to allow better management of Vendor Cost, as well as reducing bad data creation.  Please note, accounts with any existing unnamed vendors will need to either remove or name these vendors before proceeding with the next import.
