Modifier Group Name
This is your opportunity to create “action” items for your customers. By using words like Choose, Add, Modify, Select you are asking your customers to act on the options. These titles are customer-facing and are displayed on your menu.
This field is optional but is helpful in organizing your menu. It can be used as an internal “description” for the menu editor, to describe the modifiers included, or what items the modifier group applies to. For example, “Choose Size” is a modifier group that can apply to multiple items, such as coffee, soups or salads. Adding the category or item name in an internal note will help keep you organized when adding modifier groups to items.
You can set the minimum or the maximum number of options that customers may select. For example, for a mandatory modifier, such as a size option for a latte, you would set the Min/Max as 1/1 so that a default is selected but customers are given the choice to change it.
For add-ons, you would set the Min/Max as 0/0 as you do not want to limit the number of add-ons that customers can select to increase their cart size, while also not forcing customers to add extra options onto their item. For more tips on Minimum/Maximum see here.
