Integration Configuration and Settings

Once you have successfully synced your Tendy POS 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 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?

 

With Tendy POS, you have the following options: 

 

Default Item Status

Automatically set new and restocked items to either active or inactive by default. Items automatically set to an inactive status must be manually set to active before being visible on online menus.

  • Items set to “Active”: these items 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”: these items will be hidden from all online menus. They 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, and Other.

Inventory Availability Rules

You can set inventory thresholds at both the Global and Category levels. If a threshold is defined, items with inventory counts under the thresholds set will be automatically hidden from your online menus. By default, the threshold is set to 1. 

Note: If your POS has the ability for thresholds, those settings will override Leafly.
