Changing the Scale Unit of Measure

When you weigh a menu item, the unit of measure configured for the scale must match the unit of measure configured for the menu item. For example, if the unit of measure for a menu item is configured in pounds, then the unit of measure configured for the scale must also be in pounds.

If there is a unit of measure mismatch, the Toast POS system displays a Configure Scale error message similar to this example:

The Configure Scale error message.

If you see this error, you must configure the scale so that it uses the unit of measure indicated by the Configure Scale error message. To change the unit of measure on the scale, use the UNIT key on the scale keyboard.
