Toast POS

Below are the following integrations:

Real-time Sales & Forecasting

You can link your Toast POS with 7shifts to provide accurate sales forecasting when building schedules. This allows for more accurate scheduling if you're wanting to stay on budget and within your labor target percentage. 7shifts will also show you in real-time what your actual sales are and alert you when you're making shift changes.

Getting started

If this is your first time enabling this integration, you will need to send the following email to support@toasttab.com requesting your Toast credentials:

--------------------

Hello,

I am looking to integrate 7shifts with my Toast POS. I need the following information for each location that is associated with my Toast account: client id, secret, naming authority and restaurant GUID. My name is _________________ and my restaurant/cafe is ______________.

Thank you.

--------------------

Once someone from Toast has gotten back to you saying the credentials have been shared with 7shifts, please send the following email to support@7shifts.com:

--------------------

Hello,

I've been informed that Toast has provided 7shifts with my credentials. Can someone please assist with getting these input into my account?

--------------------

A 7shifts rep will then help you get the necessary information input to enable the integration. They will follow these steps:

Step 1: Login to your 7shifts and go to the top right > Company Settings > Add-ons > Third Party.
Step 2: Now turn on "Toast - Real-time Sales & Forecasting",
Step 3: Enter your Client Id, Client Secret and GUID (provided by your Toast rep) and other information and click "Activate".

Once you've activated it, it will take a few hours to start bringing in sales data.

Once it's complete, your schedules page will look like this:

The actual sales row will initially be empty until sales start rolling in. Once the sales numbers have been pulled in to 7shifts, they will be shown appropriately under the specific day.

Now when you go to build schedules for future weeks, 7shifts will automatically look at past historical sales and insert sales projections for you.

More integrations with Toast will be available soon!
