Device setup access permissions

Permissions in the Device Setup section control access to Setup > Device Setup configuration options that are available from a Toast POS device. The access permissions that you assign to a restaurant employee control which configuration options that employee can change.

Note

Some device setup options are available only after a feature is enabled in the Toast administration back-end, or rely on an optional service or module.

The following table includes information about the Device Setup access permissions on the job details page. To open the job details page, select Employees > Employee management > Jobs, and then select the job title.
