As of May 2024, this integration is no longer supported. Leafly received notice that Dauntless will not be implementing any new integrations, and Korona is unable to support new integrations without additional development work.

 

Please note: Dauntless is a third-party provider who resells Korona software under their brand. If you are working directly with Korona POS outside of any interaction with Dauntless, you will not be able to integrate your menu via this path.

Leafly Configuration (post-POS sync)

Once you have successfully synced your Dauntless menu with Leafly, you can configure the integration and override menu data in Leafly Biz.

These changes will persist in your Leafly menu unless you disconnect and then reconnect your POS and resync your POS menu data.

Locate your Menu Manager Settings by checking out this Help Desk article: Where do I locate my menu manager settings and options?

 

Default Item Status

On the POS Settings page, automatically set new and restocked items to either active or inactive by default. Items automatically set to an inactive status will need to manually be set to active before being visible on online menus.

  • Items set to “Active” will show up on all online menus and be set to “Available for Pick-Up/Delivery” if your store participates in any of Leafly’s order ahead programs.
  • Items set to “Inactive” will be hidden from all online menus and will no longer be “Available for Pick-Up/Delivery” if your store participates in any of Leafly’s order ahead programs.

Category Mapping

We currently support the following categories → Accessory, Seeds, Clone, Flower, Edible, PreRoll, Concentrate, Cartridge, Topical, Other.

If your POS assigned category does not align with a predefined Leafly category, it will be assigned a category of Other by default. Remap categories as desired on the POS Settings tab once your menu is successfully synced to Leafly.

Dauntless (Korona) FAQs (please review prior to menu sync)

Is there a cost associated with using this integration?
  • No, there is no additional cost associated with turning on this integration.
If I have an existing menu in Leafly, do I need to save it prior to syncing my POS menu?
  • No. Leafly will automatically save a copy of the menu that you maintained before connecting your POS system. If you encounter any issues with the data that is pulled in from your POS, you can quickly revert back by selecting “Disconnect and restore pre-POS connected menu data” when disconnecting the POS and reverting the menu back to its original state. To learn how to disconnect your point of sale, we advise following the instructions in this article: How do I disconnect my point of sale?
Can I manually update fields on Leafly Biz that are missing? 
  • With this integration, when you are synced, you can:
    • manually select staff picks
    • override status of items received from the POS
    • set inventory thresholds at a global and category level
    • override your POS menu items with your own product photography, descriptions, potency values and more
  • If you disconnect and choose to retain data from your last POS sync, any overrides made in Leafly Biz will remain unless a POS is reconnected and resynced to Leafly. 
  • If you disconnect and choose to restore pre-POS connected menu data, any overrides made in Leafly Biz will not remain and will be deleted. 
Where do I upload my photos?
  • Dauntless does not currently support photo uploads to menu feeds. You are able to manually upload images via Leafly Biz (after the next sync, these images will remain). 
Is there a way to not have items appear in Leafly?
  • Currently, any products with “Sample” in the name will be filtered out. Additionally, if you would not like an item to appear, do not add the list_leafly tag within Dauntless while configuring your data (if an item is not showing and you’d like it to, you can include this tag and it should appear). You can also utilize Leafly’s menu configuration option to exclude inventory by keyword or category.
Is there a way to complete bulk updates for the new fields (strain, brand and compound data)?
  • Currently, there is not a way for client-initiated bulk updates. All updates will need to go through the Dauntless.. Note: If you are new Dauntless client, Dauntless can use your data from your previous POS and upload strain and brand data. If not, Dauntless can provide you with a CSV of all of your products, where you can enter the strain and brand data. Once completed, they will be able to do a mass upload on their end.
Can I regenerate my Leafly API key? 
  • If you need to regenerate your Leafly API key, please contact Leafly support using our Request Form.
Can I deactivate the menu sync?
  • Yes, you can disconnect your POS in Leafly Biz. To learn how to disconnect your point of sale, we advise following the instructions in this article: How do I disconnect my point of sale?
Do products on the menu have sales tax associated?
  • Clients can also use our tax feature in the Menu Manager Settings Biz to set sales and excise taxes to apply in checkout. To learn more about setting these options, please check out this Help Desk article: Setting up Tax Estimates for your Leafly Menu

Why is Leafly showing something different for Brand or Strain information than what I have in my POS?

  • After Leafly receives a menu payload, we will try to match strain and brand information to existing entries in Leafly's database to cross-link and provide greater visibility for menu items across the platform.

  • Sometimes particular Strains or Brands do not exist yet in Leafly's database. In that case, we are trying to smart-match to the closest available entry. This can result in incorrect links.

  • You have the ability to change or remove incorrect links by editing those fields within your Menu Manager.

Can I make changes to item data on Leafly while my POS integration is active?

  • Yes, with some limitations.
  • You are able to override every menu item field except for the price point. This allows you to update Strain or Brand links or supplement other information like cannabinoid data, photos, or description. Leafly defers to your POS system as the source of truth for item pricing.
  • These manual overrides will persist on items you edit until they go out of stock and fall off your menu entirely.
