How do I update my account information?

To update your account information, log in to your admin account. From here, go to the “Settings” tab located under the drop-down menu. At the bottom of this screen, choose “Manage Account.” From here you will be able to update restaurant information and payment options.


What is the difference between admin, manager and employee accounts?

  • Admin Account: This is the primary account for the restaurant, with the highest authorization. We recommend that this account is accessible by either the owner, or the General Manager. This account has access to all features and is the ​only account that can delete manager accounts and change account settings (payments, restaurant information, etc).
  • Manager Account: Can add/change all information, issue tests, schedule training, and add or delete all employee accounts.
  • Employee Account: Can view information, take tests, and complete training.
