Receipt promo area can be restricted to receipts for specific dining options

In the Toast administration back-end, the Receipt Setup page has a new option, Display Promo Area On, that allows you to configure whether the promo area is printed on all receipts or only on receipts for orders with the dining options you choose. For example, you can limit the promo area to printing on receipts for takeout orders only. To use this option, set the Display Promo Area On setting to Per dining option and then choose the dining options from the list.
