Hardware and Performance 2.36

This section provides information about changes that affect the Toast POS system hardware and performance.


The following notes provide information about new and improved functionality.

Improved Error Message for Card Reader Errors

Previously, the error message shown for card reader errors was generic and did not contain actionable information. With this release, the error message dialog displays the following message: "Card reader error. Check that the Guest Pay reader is connected and powered on.”

Improved Credit Card Reader Information on the POS App Device Status Screen

Previously, the Device screen under Device Status in the Toast POS app only displayed the name of one credit card reader associated with the device. This release adds a Credit Card Reader Details section to the Device screen. This section lists all credit card readers associated with the device and displays their make, model, payment type (employee or guest), and connection status.
