Assigning courses

You use courses to manage the firing of tickets to the kitchen for fulfillment. The details page for each menu, menu group, subgroup, or menu item has a Course setting, under the Kitchen prep section, that shows the course that has been assigned to it.

By default, menu groups inherit their course assignment from their parent menus. Menu items and subgroups inherit their course assignment from their parent menu groups. If you want to override the inherited course for a menu group, subgroup, or item, toggle the link icon to unlink the configuration and then select the course from the list.

The location of the unlink toggle for the Course section.

While you can assign courses in the menu builder, you must use the classic Courses page to create the courses themselves.

For more information about using courses, see this Toast Central article.
