Product options let you create and reuse frequently used options across different categories and products when you enable the feature. An example of when you would use a product option is when you want to designate that the item is to go, or to indicate the ice level for an order.
Each product option is grouped into a product option group for convenience and you can create as many product option groups and product options as you would like. For example, a product option group could be salad dressing, and the product options would be ceasar, balsamic, and thousand island.
On a Category or Product level, you can attach one or more product option groups that will then be available when taking an order. Simply enable the feature when creating or editing a menu category or an individual product under a category.
