Advanced Setup for Restaurant Groups
Employees in multi-restaurant groups may also be assigned permissions at the group level. This setting is required to allow access to make edits to menus, taxes, discounts, and other items that require permissions to view and adjust.
Users who have the 'User Permissions' permission granted to them at the group level can manage these group-level permissions for other users. Please contact Toast Customer Care if you are just starting to use Toast at your restaurant group and you need to assign someone this role.
To update permissions on a group level:
Step 1: Navigate to an employee's Jobs and Permissions page and select Add Group / Restaurant Permissions.
Step 2: Select a restaurant or group for which you want to update the permissions and select Add.
Step 3: The dialog will close and the permissions editor section will reload to look like below. Select the group or restaurant name to expand a Permissions menu.
Step 4: Grant access to all permissions by selecting Override and selecting the Allow checkbox. All permissions should have a blue checkmark next to them.
NOTE: This group-level access can be completely revoked by clicking the Trashcan icon on the collapsed group permissions table.
For situations with complex group setups having more than one level of groups, permissions can be adjusted at any level of the group structure. For help with this, please contact Toast Customer Care.
NOTE: Currently, group-level permissions only allow back-end access. If a user needs to log in to a Toast device, they will need to be explicitly added as an employee at the location they are trying to access. Once they are added, they will receive the permissions inherited from the group, but the manual step of adding them as an employee still needs to be taken.
