Lightspeed POS

Below are the following integrations:

Adding the Integration

Please email lightspeed-support@7shifts.com with the following information:

1. The url displayed when you are logged into your Lightspeed web portal.

2. The administrator email used to login to your Lightspeed web portal.

Once we receive that information we will reach out with next steps. 

Real-time Sales & Forecasting

You can link your Lightspeed POS with 7shifts to provide accurate sales forecasting when building schedules. This allows for more accurate scheduling if you're wanting to stay on budget and within your labor target percentage. 7shifts will also show you in real-time what your actual sales are.

To enable Lightspeed Sales & Forecasting: 

Hover over your profile picture > Company Settings > Add-ons > Third Party > 'Lightspeed POS'

Click 'Settings' beside the Location(s) that you want to enable

Click the toggle next to 'Real-time Sales & Forecasting'

Once you've activated it, it will take a few hours to start bringing in sales data. Upon completion, your Budget Tool will look like this:

The Actual Sales row will initially be empty until sales start rolling in. Once the sales numbers have been pulled in to 7shifts, they will be shown appropriately under the specific day.

Now when you go to build schedules for future weeks, 7shifts will automatically look at past historical sales and insert sales projections for you.

 Actual Labor


We integrate with Lightspeed actual labor which means your actual labor costs will be pulled into 7shifts. Once enabled, this data will be displayed on the Dashboard allowing you to compare Sales vs. Labor.

To enable Lightspeed Actual Labor: 

Hover over your profile picture > Company Settings > Add-ons > Third Party > 'Lightspeed POS'

Click 'Settings' beside the Location(s) that you want to enable

Click the toggle next to 'Actual Labor'

 Mapping Employees

Click 'Map Employees' to map your Employees between Lightspeed and 7shifts. 

7shifts will automatically map any Employees that already exist between your POS and 7shifts. You'll find those under the 'Matched' heading. You'll simply need to click 'Save' to complete the mapping for those.

For unmatched employees, you can either match up, ignore, or create the employee. Please review all matched employees before clicking 'Save'. If an incorrect match was made, you can always correct the mistake by clicking 'unmatch'. The employee will now be listed under 'Unmatched' and you can assign them correctly from there.  After clicking 'Save', it can take up to 3 hours to finish syncing. 


Adding employees after integration is enabled 

Moving forward, you can add your new employees to your POS or 7shifts. If there are any new employees needing to be matched, you will see a banner at the top of your screen notifying you to take action.

Match: Simply find the corresponding employee in the list.

Ignore: You'll want to ignore if the employee will never need to clock in/out (i.e. Salaried employees)

Create: This will add the employee to 7shifts, allowing you to start scheduling them.

Click the slider button to enable your Actual Labor at the bottom right corner of your screen.

You'll see the Actual Labor numbers update on the Dashboard on the day you enabled Lightspeed Actual Labor. Going forward, these numbers will be updated daily from Lightspeed.
