Hi. How can we help?

Release notes from Sep 1 – Sep 30

Lightspeed Retail POS (Web)

Update: We enhanced our API in the following ways:

  • Managed sales now include tips, if tipping is enabled in the account.
  • Users can now create custom price levels by duplicating an existing price level and renaming it.
  • Employees can be created through the API, along with the relevant basic information.
  • Custom matrix attribute sets can be created using the API.

Bug fix: Lightspeed Retail POS (iOS) app version 3.11.2 removes the need to update the application. This update resolves the following:

  • The need to scan items into transfers.
  • Purchase orders or inventory counts are not automatically added to transfers when using MFi-enabled scanners on iPads.

Bug fix: For Lightspeed Hub, we resolved the following issues:

  • The saving state of the price selection in the advanced label printing modal.
  • The description row was missing for small labels.
  • The application froze when printing a receipt on an Epson printer while asleep.
  • Inventory special orders weren't sorting by status chronologically.
  • Creating new items with vendor selection “none” allowed for adding a vendor.
  • Adding bulk items via transfer based on reorder only added items in stock, which prevented inter-store transfers from causing negative inventory when using the auto-reorder option.

Bug fix: For reports, we resolved the following issues:

  • The received report and end of day report’s payment type totals did not match and were rounding up received payment types by 1 cent.
  • Voided sales showed as “in progress” in the sales history report.
  • Inventory returned report reported on the incorrect date.
  • Inventory asset report incorrectly displayed default price and margin as 0 in tax-inclusive accounts.
  • Inventory asset report could not be opened on some tax-inclusive accounts.
