Order Workflow for Weighed Menu Items

The procedure to select a weighed menu item is the same as selecting non-weighed menu items, with the exception that you must place the item on the scale. You can place the item on the scale either before or after you select the item from the menu.

To select a weighed menu item for an order

  1. Begin creating the order on your Toast POS device.

  2. Select a weighed menu item from the restaurant menu. The Weigh Item dialog displays with a weight of 0 (zero), because there is nothing on the scale.

  3. Place the item on the scale. The Weigh Item dialog changes to display the weight of the item, as in this example.

  4. On the Weigh Item dialog, tap Done.

    The item is added to the Order screen, including the quantity (total weight of the item), price of the item per unit of measure, and the total price of the item.

  5. Continue with the order.
