I'm working on a quoting system for a catering company.
It's really just going to be a 3 course menu, where the items in each course will be suggested based on the event type selected.
For each course, there are a potential of 15 options. However, I do not need to recommend all 15.
I'm thinking of suggesting 7, with the option to select other, where maybe a drop down list and comment box will allow for more control of the menu.
So my question is, is there a suggested number of options to provide a user?
Amazon suggests 10 products when I select an item. Ebay suggests 8 products when I select an item.
What are your thoughts?
Maybe I should show them all. What would you do?
