Export bigger and better data sets.

Large data sets can now be exported without missing any rows of data, no matter the size. These exports can help merchants further analyze their inventory outside of Lightspeed and prepare future import sheets.

Updates to serial number capture on purchase orders.

Merchants tracking serial numbers can now receive them directly in a purchase order by activating a modal during the receiving process.

In addition, merchants receiving serial numbers on a purchase order can now enable/disable a permission to enforce the capture of serial numbers before adding the items to inventory.

Expanded printer support.

As of Lightspeed Retail POS (R-Series) iOS app version 3.12.4, merchants can use the STAR TSP143IV receipt printer with a LAN connection type.

Create and use gift card numbers.

Merchants can now create and redeem alphanumeric gift cards from 8 to 32 characters. Special characters are not supported.
