You can represent several related items as options on a single button at POS, by setting up a parent sales item in Cinema Manager or Head Office.
For example: You have small, medium and large bags for your bulk sweets, and have set up recipes for a small candy bag, a medium candy bag and a large candy bag. You set up a parent sales item called Self-service Sweets, with the options Small Candy Bag, Medium Candy Bag and Large Candy Bag. You then set up a concession button for Self-service Sweets in POS Designer. When you click the Self-service Sweets concession button in POS, you can select either a Small Candy Bag, a Medium Candy Bag or a Large Candy Bag.
