Add Variants to a Variant Group

  • Updated

This How-To describes new functions and workflows that are only available in enforePOS 2. This version is exclusively available to customers participating in the enforePOS 2 Early Access program.

In enforePOS you create sales items without variants (Inventory, Build to Order, Voucher or Virtual Product) that you can add as variants to a variant group. If you have not yet created the variant as a sales item, you can add a new sales item. If you have already created the variant as a sales item, you can link the existing sales item. 

Requirements

To add variants to your variant group, do the following:

  1. Open Sales Items in the POS menu.
  2. Tap on Variant group.
  3. Select the variant group to which you want to add variants.

Create New Sales Item

In our example, we want to offer jeans in different sizes and colors. We have already created the Jeans variant group. 

Below, we add a new sales item as a variant to the Jeans variant group. To do this, we first create the sales item Jeans 36 Blue, to which we then add the feature Size with the feature value 36 and the feature Color with the feature value Blue.

  1. Tap on [New Sales Item] in the variant group.

    Features are properties that distinguish variants of a sales item. This allows for a more targeted search of variants. Such features can be, for example, size or color.

    If desired, add additional features and feature values to the variant.

Link existing Sales Items

If you have already created sales items that you want to add to the variant group as variants, do the following:

  1. Tap on [Link Sales Item] in the variant group.

    Alternatively, tap on Add.svg at the top right and select Add existing Sales Item in the submenu.

    ⮕ The Select Sales Items window opens.
  2. Select one or more sales items.
    In our example, we add the already existing sales items Cappuccino Large, Cappuccino Medium and Cappuccino Small to the variant group Cappuccino.
  3. Tap on [Confirm]. 16_EN.png
    ⮕ You have added the selected sales items as variants to the variant group.

    An existing sales item that you have assigned as a variant to your variant group will no longer appear as a single sales item in your sales items. You can remove a variant from the variant group. This turns the removed variant into a sales item again. To learn how to do this, see the How-To Remove Variants from a Variant Group.

  4. Tap on a variant to add features to the variant.
