The purpose of this article is to provide the necessary steps for all levels of technical knowledge to be able to restart the Olo Service and Olo Update Service when requested to do so by an Olo Team Member. 


The solution includes the steps to restart each of the Olo Windows Services that are running on the Windows 10 device that the Olo Software is installed on.

Step 5:

Highlight the service by clicking on the name and then the "Restart" option in the middle of the Services Window. 
If you do not have the options for restart as shown in the figure below, please log into Windows with an Administrator account or contact your designated IT Profession for assistance in getting access to this option.
