Integrating with Lightspeed Restaurant (O-series) POS via the payroll platform

The timesheet integration feature allows you to connect your payroll platform to your Lightspeed Restaurant (O-series) Point of Sale (POS) platform. It will enable you to import your timesheets directly from your Lightspeed platform. With the ability to select whether these need approval on the payroll platform before applying to an employee's pay run.

You will need to enable the Time and Attendance add on in your Lightspeed Restaurant (O-series) POS first, before you can start importing your timesheets. To read further information on how to undertake this task, refer to the following article.

Important

When importing timesheets from your Lightspeed POS platform, your employee and location data within your payroll platform must match the data imported from your Kounta platform. We recommend you use the Import Employees feature to make sure a matching employee and location date between the two platforms.

Warning

Timesheets will only flow from the HR platform to your payroll platform; this data connection is not bidirectional. Timesheet submissions in the payroll platform will not flow to the HR platform. We advise you to submit any timesheet via the HR platform's Timesheet feature.
