Be Respectful

We want everyone to have a positive experience in the Toast Community, so we ask that you please be respectful and considerate when engaging with other community members. We’re all passionate about restaurant hospitality, so please be kind to your fellow restaurant community members and be mindful that everyone is at different stages in their restaurant journey. 


  • The community is here for any restaurant owners, operators, managers, and staff who are open to sharing their restaurant experiences, best practices, stories, photos, tips and tricks.
  • We empower and support each other’s passion for restaurant hospitality.
  • We treat each other with respect and kindness, always.

Community Team

We have designated employees from our Community team who manage the Toast Community. You can find them with a “Community Manager” badge. Our priority is to maintain a positive space for you all to learn more about optimizing your businesses, so that you can do what you love: delight guests, and thrive!

Ways to Engage with the Toast Community

  • Start a discussion by asking a detailed question about the best way to use various Toast products in the product forums.
  • Make sure to select a reply as the Accepted Solution when your question is answered, so that future members can see your preferred answer (and reward the replier for being so helpful)!
  • Reply to fellow Toast users’ questions
  • Give Kudos to a post or comment that you found useful
  • Discuss industry trends in the [Industry Trends] forum
  • Share a story, photo, or best practice tip
  • Use the online community to seek additional knowledge on the restaurant industry, share best practices, ask questions and seek support from other Toast users
  • Be sure to use the search function to see if your question has been asked and answered before! There may also be a Toast Central article that will answer your question.
