Ability to open a new order page with prepopulated data

Hi,


We are working on a solution to integrate salesforce with lightspeed. Part of this is to have the ability to be able to open a new order (in Edit Mode) in lightspeed with the customer info and the order items pre-populated.

Is there a way with the current API abilities to achieve this?

    Hey @ManavAggarwal,

    When you say new order do you mean a sale or purchase order?


    Kind Regards,

    Hi @Adrian Samuel ,


    Yes. A new purchase order where I will have the order details and each of the products the consumer is going to buy.

    Hey @Manager,

    Purchase Orders aren't associated to customers but rather to shop locations in Lightspeed.

    There is a special order section in Lightspeed that implicitly associates a special order to a Customer so when the Order, comes in, you can see the status of the given order at completion or not.

    However special orders can't be assigned via the API.

    As a solution you could create a special order and auto-populate it via Salesforce using the Order API Endpoint but you would likely need a separate app with a user-interface to tell you which order is associated to which customer and for you to search through them effectively
