Modifier Sets, and the Modifiers organized within them, appear in your Groovv app on the Edit Item Screen. Modifiers are items that can be added to Products in an Order. Modifier Sets are groups of Modifiers that are then applied to specific Products. For example, if your restaurant sells burgers, the Modifier Sets you have may be, Add-ons, Temperature, and Seasonings. The Modifiers within the Add-ons Modifier Set might include cheese, bacon, and jalapenos, while the Modifiers in the Temperature Modifier Set would be rare, medium rare, medium, well done. Then when you add a burger to an Order, and the customer requests a medium burger and to add cheese, you would go to the Edit Item Screen and select medium from the Temperature Modifier Set, and cheese from the Add-ons Modifier Set.
Modifiers are created at the Account Level in the Portal, meaning the Modifiers you create can be applied to any and all of your business locations. To learn more about creating Modifiers, click here.
Modifier Sets are created at the Location Level. Therefore, if you have more than one Location for your business, you can create Modifier Sets based on the needs of each Location. When you create your Modifier Sets, you add the appropriate Modifiers from the list of Modifiers you previously created at the Account Level.
Once you have created your Modifier Sets, the next step is to apply them to each Product to which you would like to be able to add the included Modifiers during an Order. To learn more about how to assign Modifier Sets to Products, click here.
Modifier Set Attributes
Creating Modifier Sets is a two-step process. In the first step you assign a Name, Color, Icon, Price, and Print Type. You also choose Required or Optional and Single Select or Multi-select. In the second step, you select which Modifiers will be included in the Modifier Set. You also have the option to add Products as Modifiers within the Modifier Set.

The Name you give to the Modifier Set. Make sure it is descriptive so that it is easy to differentiate between Modifier Sets. For example, you wouldn’t want to have Spices and Seasonings Modifier Sets, as that could get confusing for the Cashier.
Assigning a Color and Icon for Modifier Sets is required. Because of this, a Color and Icon will be preselected on the Add Modifier Set Screen. You can choose to keep the preselected Color and Icon, or use the drop down menus to pick your desired Color and Icon for the Modifier Set.
Setting a Price for a Modifier Set changes the Price for all Modifiers within that Modifier Set, overriding the Price set for the Modifiers when they were created at the Account Level on the Modifier Screen.
You can also set the Price of individual Modifiers within a Modifier Set. This will override the Price set for the Modifiers at the Account Level, as well as the Price set for the entire Modifier Set.
This setting allows you to control when a Modifier is printed on the customer’s receipt. It is important to note that this setting does not affect Station Tickets which will continue to include all Modifiers added to an Item. There are three print options available for Modifier Sets.
When this option is selected, none of the Modifiers in this set will be printed on a customer receipt when they are added to an Item.
Print Default Changes
When this option is selected, any changes to Default Modifiers will be printed. For example, if your Restaurant typically serves a burger with pickles, cheese, and ketchup, you would create a Modifier Set that included those Modifiers and you would mark them as “Default”. If a customer ordered a burger and asked for no pickles, you would deselect the pickles Default Modifier and the customer receipt would be printed with “No pickles” below the burger entry.
When this option is selected, all modifiers within this set will be printed if they are added to an Item.
Required or Optional
When creating a Modifier Set, you will be able to decide whether adding a Modifier to a Product in an Order is a required action or an optional action. Choosing Required means that a Modifier must be added to the Product. So, if you select a Product for an Order that has a Modifier Set that is Required, when you add that Product, you will be automatically taken to the Edit Item Screen where you will need to select a Modifier for the Product. In our burger example, you may have the Temperature Modifier Set marked as Required, so when you add a burger to an Order, the customer must choose what temperature they want their burger cooked to.
Products with Optional Modifier Sets will not direct you to the Edit Item Screen when added to an Order. Rather, if the customer wants to add a Modifier, you will have to navigate to the Edit Item Screen manually and select the desired Modifiers from the assigned Modifier Sets for that Product.
Single Select or Multi-Select
When creating a Modifier Set, you will be able to decide between marking the Modifier Set as being Single Select and Multi-Select. If you choose Single Select, you will only be able to add one Modifier from the Modifier Set to a Product. If you choose Multi-select, you will be able to add one or more Modifiers to a Product. Using the Temperature Modifier Set example from above, if an Item can only have one temperature, it will make sense for you to mark the Temperature Modifier Set as being Single Select. This way only one temperature Modifier can ever be selected at a time.
Once you have completed the first step of the Add Modifier Set Process, you are then taken to the Edit Modifier Set Screen where you select which Modifiers you would like to include in the Modifier Set. Modifiers can be in one, many, or no Modifier Sets.
It is at this point that you can override the Modifier Set Price and instead choose a different Price for each Modifier in the Set. This is an optional feature. You can also choose to make certain Modifiers in the Modifier Set a Default Modifier by checking the box in the Default Column. By making a Modifier a Default, when you add a Product to an Order that has a Modifier Set assigned to it, the Default Modifier in that Set will be automatically added to the Product.
You can also sort the order in which Modifiers appear within a Modifier Set. This makes it easy to have the most commonly used Modifiers readily available within each Modifier Set. To learn more about sorting Modifiers in a Modifier Set, click here.
You also have the option of adding Products from your Product Library to a Modifier Set as a Modifier. Products can be in one, many, or no Modifier Sets.
Since you are adding the Product as a Modifier, you have the option to set a new Price for the Product, overriding its Account Level Price and the Modifier Set Price, as well as the option to make it a Default Modifier.
Modifier Sets Screen Elements
You can find the Modifier Set Screen in the Portal by clicking on Settings in the Navigation Menu, and then selecting Modifier Sets from the Settings Expanded Menu.
On the Modifier Screen you will see a table with three columns: Name, Icon/Color, and Modifiers. The Name Column has the name of the Modifier Sets you created. You assign the name in the Create or Edit Modifier Set Process. The Icon Column shows the Icon and Color you assigned to each Modifier Set. The Modifier Column lists the number of Modifiers that are organized within each Modifier Set. You can sort the list of Modifier Sets by clicking on the Name and Modifiers Columns.
To the left of the Name of each Modifier there are three buttons, the Edit Button, the Layout Button, and the Delete Button. Clicking the Edit Button, represented by the Pencil Icon, takes you to the Edit Modifier Set Screen where you can edit everything from the name of the Modifier Set to which Modifiers are organized within the Modifier Set.
Clicking the Layout Button, represented by two arrows pointing up and down, takes you to the Modifier Set Layout Screen where you can sort the order in which Modifiers appear within the Modifier Set. To learn more about sorting Modifiers in a Modifier Set, click here.
Clicking the Delete Button, represented by the Trash Can Icon, permanently deletes the Modifier Set. This action cannot be undone.
Add Modifier Set Button
In the top right corner of the screen you can see the Add Set Button. Clicking this takes you to the Add Modifier Set Screen. Once you have entered the necessary information and press the Save Button, you are taken to the Edit Modifier Set Screen to finish the Add Modifier Set Process. Click here to learn more about how to add new Modifier Sets.
At the top of the table, there is a Search Text Box and Search Button. To search for a Modifier Set, type the name of the Set into the Search Text Box and then press the Search Button. The results will be listed in the table.
