There are many uses for printers within Lightspeed Restaurant: a kitchen printer can print food order chits, and a receipt printer can print customer receipts or closing reports. Printer types are added within Restaurant Manager and used by both the Restaurant Manager or Restaurant POS app, depending on the printing need.
While printers are most often used with the Restaurant POS app, it is possible to print certain items from the Restaurant Manager. Reports, invoices, or customer receipts can be printed from the Restaurant Manager, in regions where these functions are supported. Please see Reporting and Data for more info on printing from the Restaurant Manager.
