Accessing Admin Settings


You use the Admin Settings page to set up all aspects of your restaurant (printers, menus, floor plans, staff members, and more).

Note: You should avoid making changes to your restaurant while you’re in service. Making a lot of changes while you’re also processing orders can lead to data corruption. Wait until your end of day or before you’ve opened for the day to make changes to your menu items, floor plan, and the like.

To access the Admin section, login with your Admin passcode. The default login pass for Admin is 1234. If you are still using the default passcode, you should change this as soon as possible (see Staff for how to change your passcode).

From your Floorplan screen, you will see the Admin menu option in the menu bar. Tap that. The Admin menu section is available to anyone using the Administrator login.

To access the Admin section, tap Admin Settings.

Available Settings

Along the left side are the available Admin settings. You’ll need to visit each setting to properly set up TouchBistro. Tapping an Admin setting icon (for example, Printers & KDS) opens available setting options.
