Toast allows the flexibility of choosing to fulfill individual items or entire orders on the KDS depending on which option works best for your restaurant.
Item fulfillment Select Enable individual item fulfillment to turn on fulfillment on the individual item level. This setting enables you to mark one or more individual items on the order as complete. Most restaurants prefer individual item fulfillment because it's similar to checking items off on a paper ticket...especially when you have a large order and all food items take different amount of times to cook. The cook can fulfill items as they’re completed to ensure they don’t overlook anything.
Order fulfillment Select Disable individual item fulfillment to configure fulfillment on the order level. This setting allows you to mark the whole order as complete. Order fulfillment makes the most sense at QSRs like ice cream shops, where most menu items take roughly the same amount of time to prepare. Using this setting allows your kitchen staff members to fulfill an entire order at once.
