To review and change settings on the Kitchen/Dining Room > Courses page, you must have the Web Setup > Kitchen / Dining Room Setup access permission.

After you add courses, you can assign them to your menus, menu groups, menu items, or modifier options. You can update or review the course assignments for all of your menu entries at once on the Menus > Advanced Properties page.

You can also give servers the option to specify the course for each item in an order with the Course additional modifier group. To give servers the ability to send an order with multiple courses, but fire each course separately, you can enable the Course Pacing setting.
