Leafly Configuration (post-POS sync)

Once you have successfully synced your 365Cannabis 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.

Inventory Availability Rules

On the POS Settings page, 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.

Ranger FAQs (prior to syncing, please review)

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?
Once I make a change in my POS, how soon will I see the changes on Leafly’s menu? 
  • Ranger POS pushes your full menu to Leafly once per day. You can also manually sync changes to Leafly.
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 (active/inactive)
    • 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. 
Do products on the menu have sales tax associated? 
  • Sales tax is included in the menu item price if a tax rate is configured in Ranger for your store. Additionally, Leafly estimated taxes are included in the checkout process if Leafly Pickup is active for online ordering. 
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?

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.

Is the Ranger POS integration compatible with Leafly's Dual Menu feature?

  • No, Ranger does not provide enough detail about medical or recreational status of menu items for Leafly to sort your products accordingly. You will not be able to use Leafly's Dual Menu feature.
