If your customers can choose a side dish with a main course in your restaurant, it's best to create a Build to Order sales item with options.
In enforePOS you can create individual options and option groups. There are several ways to create sales items with options:
- You can create the options separately and link them to the sales item later (see How-To Create Sales Item Options)
- You can create option groups and later link them to a sales item (see How-To Create Option Groups)
In this How-To you will learn how to create a steak menu.
The different cooking levels of the steak are the variants in enforePOS.
The side dishes that your customer can choose are the options.

In our example, we will create the side dishes for our steak as options.
Link Options and Sales Items
