Getting menu information from the menu data export (deprecated)

Important

The menus API has replaced the the menu data export as the preferred mechanism for retrieving menu data for a restaurant. It is described in the Getting Menu Information from the Menus API section. This section remains for customers who have not yet transitioned to using the menus API for menu data retrieval, however, the export functionality will be deprecated at some point in the future and this section will be removed.

You can get detailed information about the menus configured for your restaurant from the menu data export file. The Toast POS system generates data export files once a day and makes them available for downloading. This section provides information about downloading data export files and understanding the values in menu data export files.
