Access permissions overview

This section describes the access permissions that are available for the Toast platform. Each permission grants access to a system feature, such as an option on a Toast POS device or a type of report to run or configuration change to make.


Typically, you do not assign access permissions to individual employees. Instead, you group a set of access permissions into a job, and then assign the job to the employees who need to use the corresponding feature set.

In order to set up jobs, you must have the Employee Jobs & Wages access permission and credentials to access the Toast administration back-end. To assign an access permission to an individual employee, you must have the User Permissions access permission. In addition, you must yourself have an access permission in order to include it in a job or assign it to an employee.
