In Toast 2.10, KDS functionality has been improved to include the ability to create KDS tickets for each item. This configuration is useful for the kitchen workflow at tapas restaurants where food runners bring individual dishes to customers as they are ready instead of bringing the entire order at once.
To enable the KDS individual tickets per item setting, navigate to Kitchen Setup under the Kitchen / Dining Room section.
1.) Scroll down to Individual Tickets for Every Item in an Order under the Printed Tickets section. Select Print and show individual tickets on the ticket display screen.
2.) Scroll to the Ticket Screens section and disable the hide course setting feature if it is not already disabled. Otherwise, there will be unnecessary clutter on your KDS.
Once the feature is enabled and the course setting is disabled, you can see the individual items as their own tickets on the KDS. See in the example below that #1088 ordered a boneless basket and onion rings. The onion rings come out first, so the cook can fulfill that item and send it off with its printed ticket.
