Configuring an auto-fire device

Note

Only one device should be configured as an auto-fire device to avoid double printing. Toast support recommends the auto-fire 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 auto-fire 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 auto-fire device. If you choose the Approve manually approval mode, no auto-fire device is required, unless you allow scheduled orders. If you allow scheduled orders, you need an auto-fire device.

  3. Under the Approval section, select a device to configure to auto-fire. To display the list of available devices for auto-firing, 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 auto-fire device.

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

  6. Click the Save button to save your changes.
