Link a TimeForge account with a LightSpeed account

If you’re using TimeForge and LightSpeed, you can link the two systems. This will allow you to create employees in LightSpeed and have them appear in TimeForge, allow employees to clock in through LightSpeed and have the attendance appear in TimeForge, and synchronize your sales from LightSpeed into TimeForge.

The first step is to link the two systems inside of TimeForge. This article will discuss this process from the Corporation Level for companies with multiple TimeForge locations.

Note: For companies with only one location, the only difference is the first step. You will simply hover over “Set Up” and click “Settings” and then follow the remaining steps.

Go to the “Company Settings” page

Go to the "Company Settings" page

To first start the integration between LightSpeed and TimeForge, you’ll first need to authenticate your LightSpeed account inside of TimeForge. This is done on the “Company Settings” screen at the corporation level:

  • Login
  • Go to the Corporation Level
  • Hover over “Setup” and click “Company Settings”.  

Scroll down to the bottom of the page

Turn on the online POS integration

At the bottom of the page, you’ll find the options shown above. You’ll need to:

1. Change this option to “Yes” so that the integration for online POS systems is turned on.

2. Click “Add” in the LightSpeed row so that you can log in to your LightSpeed account.

Click “Save” once you’re finished.

Enter your LightSpeed login information

Enter your LightSpeed login information

Enter the username and password you use to log in to your lightspeed account. Then, click “Sign in”.

Authorize TimeForge to access your LightSpeed account

Authorize TimeForge to access your LightSpeed account

Clicking “Authorize Application” gives TimeForge permission to communicate with your LightSpeed account. This is how TimeForge will be able to have new employees who are added into LightSpeed automatically show up in TimeForge, synchronize clock in times and sales data, and enforce the schedule to prevent early clock in/late clock out.  

Success!

Success!

TimeForge can now communicate with your LightSpeed POS. You will still need to activate the integration at the location level in order to start pulling over information.

heartWhat some of our clients have to say ...

We are one year into it now, well past being enamored with the newness. We are married to TimeForge. It's as essential to us now as any of our management tools today, and we very happy about that.- Steve @ Hermosa Cyclery
We really like the program so far. I know that it is geared towards restaurants, but we are a real estate company and we love it because it is inexpensive and it is so easy to use.- Nicole @ Exit Premier Realty
The Timeforge scheduling system has not only increased our efficiency tremendously; decreased the errors in what is normally an error prone environment; it has also saved us ten times what it costs us each month.- Michael @ Tiara Cafe
