Toast allows you to configure and assign swipe cards to employees and managers in order to reduce the chances of pass code theft and high level manager permissions abuse.
- Start by navigating to Register Swipe Card from the main Toast POS dashboard.
- Register Swipe Card is a manager sub permission. You may need to review your manager permissions or contact your restaurant administrator in order to gain access to this permission.
Locate and tap on the employee you wish to register a card to.
Select the +Add button and swipe the card through the credit card reader attached to the Toast device. Then, select Done. You can now swipe the card to populate the pass code and select the Go or Time Clock to access Toast POS for standard use.
Replace or Revoke Swipe Card Access
You can also replace or revoke swipe card access through the Register Swipe Card screen. A small credit card icon will appear next to any employee that currently has a swipe card assigned. Tapping on the employee name will allow you to replace with a new swipe card or to revoke the employee's current swipe card access.
Revoking swipe card access to an employee will not prevent you from reassigning the swipe card to any employee.
A swipe card cannot be assigned to more than one employee.
Note: Any card with a magnetic stripe can be used as a swipe card. They can be ordered through Toast or you can use college IDs, debit cards etc. as well.
