With the integration between Sling and Toast, your schedule is automatically sent to Toast every hour. You can use this information to prevent early clock-in/out on your POS.
How to enable the schedule enforcement feature
Go to your Toast account, and look for "UI options" under "Other Setup."
Please note that you may need to click "Show me all links" on the home page to see UI Options.
2. Scroll down to the "Time Clock" section and enable the "Enforce Scheduling" option.
3. Save & Publish your changes.
How to adjust schedule enforcement settings:
1. Go back to the main page on Toast and then go to "Scheduling" under "Labor"
2. From there, you can adjust your preferences in terms of early clock-in/out and late clock-in/out.
Q: What happens if an employee clocks in too early or without a scheduled shift?
A: A manager will need to enter their PIN on Toast POS to approve this unscheduled shift. The timesheet will be imported on Sling as an unscheduled timesheet.
Q: What happens if an employee clocks in too late for a scheduled shift or clocks out too early/late?
A: A manager will need to enter their PIN on Toast POS to approve this clock-in/out. The timesheet will be imported on Sling and remain linked to the scheduled shift.
Q: Why do some of the shifts sent to Toast not have a job attached?
A: This happens when the position of the shift exists as a job on Toast but doesn't match with the jobs linked to this employee. Make sure your employees have the same positions on Sling and Toast.
Q: Why are some of the shifts not sent to Toast?
A: This happens when the position of the shift in Sling does not exist as a job on Toast. It is recommended that you create new positions on Toast first, and then sync them with Sling.
