Q: What is the difference between a Variation Group and a Modifier Group?

A: Variation Groups are used for options such as size or flavor. Variations (eg. Small, Medium, Large) do not need to be added to the Menu inventory ahead of time, and customers can only choose one option from the list.

Modifier Groups are a little more complex. They are used for options such as pizza toppings, and you can set a minimum & maximum number of choices for customers. Modifiers must be added to the Menu inventory (in the Modifiers tab) before they can be added to a Modifier Group. Technically, you can use Modifier Groups for the same purpose as Variation Groups.

Q: Can I use the same Variation Group for multiple Items?

A: No - Variation Groups are specific to individual Items.
