Creating a new order


To use the New Order button, you must have Quick Order Mode permission. If you do not have Quick Order Mode permission, an error appears notifying you that you do not have permission to add new orders. From the Toast administration back-end, choose Employees > Employee management > Jobs to open the Jobs page. Click on the job title to edit the permissions. For more information about permissions, see POS access "mode" permissions.

The New Order button at the top right opens the Quick Order screen. On this screen, you can manually enter an off-premise dining order. On the Quick Order screen, click the Dining button at the bottom left, next to the Discnt button and select an off-premise dining option. Only orders placed using dining options with behaviors set to: Takeout, Delivery, or Curbside will be routed to the Orders Hub. The Orders Hub screen only displays off-premise dining orders. If you do not select an off-premise dining option, your order will be treated as on-premise and will not show up on the Orders Hub screen.
