Step 2: Begin Testing
Note: It is recommended that you have a ‘Lab” location in your POS and Lunchbox to test multiple things that aren’t location-specific, but if you are using a live location, make sure to go back and remove test store from the location.
Locations marked as “Test Stores” are NOT visible to guests. Only to signed-in Admins.
After you’ve set your ‘Test Store’ location, you are ready to test orders.
Step 1: Start your order by selecting the Test Store location:

Once it is closed in the POS, it will move to the Completed status and the order flow is complete.
Note: For non-integrated POS configurations or more manual order flow, you will probably see and use the Unacknowledged, Acknowledged and Completed statuses
Step 10: If you would like to see the entire Order Flow process, look up the Order ID, by going to Order Search and viewing the Order History:
