Assigning a POS button a nickname and a color

The details page for each menu, menu group, menu item, or modifier group has POS nickname and POS button color settings, under the General info section. These settings customize the name and color of the menu, menu group, menu item, or modifier group button that employees see in the Toast POS app.


These settings are only available if you use Toast POS devices.

If the nickname for the POS button is different than the menu entity's name, you can enter a POS nickname.

To specify a button color, select the POS Button color option and then select a color from the color palette.

By default, a POS is not specified nickname and the default button color is white.
