Configuring an autofire device

Note

Only one device should be configured as an autofire device to avoid double printing. Toast support recommends the autofire device be a hardwired terminal that is likely to remain logged into the Toast POS app throughout the entirety of your online ordering hours.

To configure an autofire device in the Toast administration back-end

  1. Access the Toast administration back-end.

  2. Choose Takeout & delivery > Availability > Online ordering to open the Online ordering page.

    Note

    If you choose to Send orders directly to the kitchen or Use rules approval modes, you must configure an autofire device. If you choose the Approve manually approval mode, no autofire device is required, unless you allow scheduled orders. If you allow scheduled orders, you need an autofire device.

  3. Under the Approval section, select a device to configure to autofire. To display the list of available devices for autofiring, click the Select a device button. This opens the Auto-Fire Device Setup modal.

  4. From the Auto-Fire Device Setup modal, select a device as your autofire device.

  5. Click the Update button to save your changes or the Cancel button to close out of the modal.
