Below is the image of "Optionalenter image description here for" related list , and what is the diff between options and optional for

1 Answer 1


Optional For means that this is a sub-product that is optional for another product. Optional means that this product has optional sub-products. As a concrete example, a car may have an optional air conditioner (this used to be a thing!). On the car, the Options list would include the air conditioning system. On the air conditioning system, it would be listed as Optional For the car.

  • Thank you so much for great response. Is there any SF documentation related to Optional for?

    @purna I couldn't find any documentation on this, I just intuited this from my knowledge of product management systems in general (I actually helped maintain an ERP for a few years).
