This integration does two things.

The first feature that the Lightspeed L Series integration involves is importing the daily turnover from your Lightspeed account. As mentioned above, turnover can be imported with or without VAT. Do not forget to indicate what kind of import you want use in the integration settings.
The turnover is imported every 15 minutes. Due to the revenue adjustments, we will import the turnover of the last two days. Changes made within the first 24 hours will be processed in the revenue, alterations after 24 hours within revenue will not be updated.
The imported sales figures are then returned to the Diary of the relevant day at the turnover field, divided by department.
Importing clock times
From the link you can import the clock times of your employees. The employees from your Lightspeed environment can be linked here. The clocked times from your Lightspeed cash register are included in the employee's time registration.
*The clocked times are retrieved from your Lightspeed cash register every 3 hours and included in the time registration.
