Basing a modifier group on an existing menu group

To base a modifier group on an existing menu group, you go to the modifier group's details page and, in the Modifiers section, set the Source configuration option to Use existing menu group. When you choose this option, a Source Menu Group button appears on the page where you can choose the menu group that will function as the modifier options for the modifier group.

When you create a modifier group based on an existing menu group, you must set any pricing for the modifier options at the modifier group level. Therefore, the Modifier Pricing Method section on the modifier group details page shows only two options for the Select where pricing is set configuration option:

  • No additional charge: The modifier options in the modifier group are free of charge.

  • Additional charge - price set by modifier group: Adds the Modifier Group Pricing section to the page, where you can specify a group-level price for the modifier options.

See Setting the modifier pricing method for a modifier group for more information on these configuration options.
