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.
