A fixed combo offers customers a predefined group of items. An example of a fixed combo is a lunch combo of a cola, burger and fries.
Creating or editing a fixed combo
The products in a fixed combo must be individually created in Restaurant Manager on the Products page before a combo is created. Once the products exist in Manager, a user can then create a combo by assembling the products together on the Combos page. For more information on creating products before adding them to a combo, see Creating products.

Add a product
|ADD A PRODUCT||
Add, edit or remove the individual products in the fixed combo. Note that products must first be created on the Products page before being added to a combo. See Creating products for more information.
Once products are added to a combo, drag and drop the products to customize how items in the combo are displayed on the POS.
If the combo's Default, Takeaway or Delivery price has been adjusted from the automatic combo price, the price of the products in the combo are displayed in a column beside the original product price. Please note that it is not possible to directly edit individual product prices in a combo but editing the Default, Takeaway or Delivery price automatically adjusts the price of the products within the combo. See Editing combo prices.
Add image and description
Give the combo an alternate name to display on bar or kitchen tickets.
|BARCODE||Manually enter the combo barcode. For more information, see Setting up barcodes.|
Add optional menu information for staff such as cooking instructions.
|IMAGE||Add a combo image for the POS. This image will display in the Product Detail view on the POS or Show and Tell view on Lightspeed Kitchen.|

Match with Timed Event
Timed events are used to set predefined time-based, fixed or percentage discounts to products. For example, Happy Hour or a weekend brunch menu can be scheduled into Lightspeed Restaurant as a Timed Event. Based on a Timed Event's set date and time, it will activate and deactivate automatically.
Combos may be matched to a timed events for a scheduled price reduction or increase. When a combo is matched to a timed event, the entire combo's price will reflect the timed event's discount. For example: if a 20.00 Pizza combo is matched with a 5.00 reduction timed event called a Lunch Special, that pizza combo will be 15.00 when ordered during lunch hours.
To match a combo with a timed event:
- Create a timed event by navigating to Products > Timed events. See Creating timed events for more information.
- Navigate to Products > Products and select to the product category of the combo you wish to edit.
- Open the combo by selecting the combo button. This will open the Combos page.
- Scroll down to the section called Match with Timed Event.
- Select a timed event to match with the combo from the drop-down list.
