Location Records can be created via the Restaurant365 Setup Assistant. Users with the following Permission will be able to access the Setup Assistant via the Administration Menu:
- Administration → System Setup → Use Setup Assistant
- Learn more about managing Permissions and Custom User Roles here. The Permission Access report can be used to determine which User Roles or Users already have these Permissions assigned.
If the Location Record being added will be a POS-Integrated Location, submit an R365 Add-On Form to begin the process of enabling polling for the Location. Once polling has been enabled, ensure that the POS Integration Settings on the Location Record are updated. For non-POS Locations, there is no associated monthly fee.
