Publishing changes for multiple locations

To publish changes you make to multiple locations, always use the Publish config page. Do not use the Publish Now link that you see at the top of page when you make changes to individual configuration entities. The Publish Now link only publishes changes to the session restaurant and changes you have made to other locations are not published when you click this link.

It is important to note that there is no roll back feature for publishing. After you publish changes, the only way to revert them is to manually change them back and then re-publish.

To publish changes when using the enterprise module

  1. In the Toast administration back-end, choose Toast account > Internal tools > Publish config to view the Publish config page.

  2. From the You are viewing menu, select the restaurants you want to view. For more details, see Filtering pages.

    The locations you have selected to view are shown in the table at the top. If a location has outstanding changes that need publishing, a Publish button appears in the location's row. If the location is up to date, it is marked as “Published”.

  3. Do one of the following:

    • To publish changes for a single location, click the location's Publish button.

    • To publish changes for multiple locations, select each location's check box and click Publish Selected Restaurants.

If you inadvertently use the Publish Now link to publish changes to the session restaurant, and there are more than 30 changes that have been made since the last publish, you will see a warning with details about the changes. In general, you should not be using the Publish Now link for publishing in an enterprise environment, you should be using the Publish config page instead, so you should not see this warning. However, some common enterprise level changes cause all of a restaurant's configuration entities to be updated and, if you accidentally use Publish Now, you may see this warning. For example, adding a location to or removing it from a restaurant group causes more than 30 changes, as does removing a restaurant group from its parent group.
