So after years of little/no changes in the Retail API I received an e-mailed announcement. Apparently Lightspeed is updating their Retail API pagination so it's cursor-based. Much more efficient and comprehensive, in terms of the response sets. Anyone who relies upon paginated responses should check out the details --> https://developers.lightspeedhq.com/retail/introduction/pagination/ and https://developers.lightspeedhq.com/retail/introduction/changelog/#20220411 . Apparently we will have a year to update our code to account for this, which is good breathing room.
A good update that will help performance and data gaps for those large requests for sure!
When looking at an item ie: inventory-items-Specific item
I wish there was a way to see if that item was a member of a price rule that is in effect.
Example the item in particular has accidentally been added to multiple price rules and the only way to find out if this is true of false, is to go through every price rule to see if the item has been added.
Whereas if there was a box/menu that indicated this item is a member of the following price rules, this would be incredibly useful to ensure discounts are being properly applied and not overruled.
With the national labor shortages, many small businesses are struggling to stay optimally staffed. We're in that boat. We're at the point now where we need to be able to offer our customers at least one self-checkout kiosk. Lightspeed has some experience with this on the restaurant side of the business, and we desperately need this option on the retail side.
Any plans to explore this in the short term?
Under INVENTORY / SPECIAL ORDERS
There is a print button that print's special orders info when item arrives so we can stick it to the product and put on our special orders shelf.
This is what it prints, it looks freaking horrid and it's missing a lot of information. Talking to LS support they told me there isn't an option to customise this template and that I could put forward a suggestion/ feedback for their developers to consider.
This is pretty much like saying Yeah Nah... go tell that to someone who doesn't care about what you are saying... seems to be the standard replay from their useless support team.
