Hi All,

Here’s my objective:
- For each “product description,” allow the option to choose for the coffee to be shipped as “whole bean” or “grounded.” (allow for multiple products with individual selection)

I believe the following needs to take place:
1. for each product, have option appear
2. at end of checkout, show new step (or show within a current step) the chosen options for each product.
3. Ask for confirmation or allow to change there on the spot
4. Save the choices to that particular order_id
5. Make options available via the backend

Does anyone know off-hand the corresponding functions that will need modified in order to pass the variables through?
I’ll be overriding the necessary controller(s) to make this happen.
