PowerShell Script menu choices

I am still learning PowerShell and am in no way great at it yet. I am a novice. I can get the basics to work and pretty much get done what is needed. Now I am trying to get into something a bit more pretty and hope I can get some help.


I have a PS script which applies licenses for users in Office 365. The script currently asks which license to apply and requires the users input.  

What I would really like to do is make it a multiple choice question.
Press 1 for this license
Press 2 for that license

Here is my current script which is working, but does not have a menu selection choice.

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$PackageName = "ApplyLicenseO365"
$logDir = "c:\Windows\Temp\"
$inputCVS = "c:\Windows\Temp\Users.csv"
$logFile = "$logDir\Apply_License_Log.txt"

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------



Write-Host "Please Enter the license SKU to apply to users on the list" -ForegroundColor Magenta
Write-Host "SKU:DESKLESSWOFFPACK for K1" -ForegroundColor Green
Write-Host "SKU:STANDARDPACK for E1" -ForegroundColor DarkGreen
$license = Read-Host


$AccountSkuId = "$license"

$UsageLocation = "US"

$LicenseOptions = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId $license

#Import CSV File
Import-Csv $inputCVS |foreach {
	$getUsername = $_.User

Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -UsageLocation $UsageLocation

Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -AddLicenses $license -LicenseOptions $LicenseOptions

}

One way to do that:
#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$PackageName = "ApplyLicenseO365"
$logDir = "c:\Windows\Temp\"
$inputCVS = "c:\Windows\Temp\Users.csv"
$logFile = "$logDir\Apply_License_Log.txt"

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

do {
  $resp = Read-Host @"
  1 - DESKLESSWOFFPACK for K1
  2 - STANDARDPACK for E1
  0 - none
"@
} while ('1', '2', '0' -notcontains $resp)

if ($resp -ne 0)
{
  $AccountSkuId = @('','SKU:DESKLESSWOFFPACK for K1','SKU:STANDARDPACK for E1')[[int]$resp]
  $UsageLocation = "US"

  $LicenseOptions = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId $license

  #Import CSV File
  Import-Csv $inputCVS | foreach {
    $getUsername = $_.User
    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -UsageLocation $UsageLocation
    Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -AddLicenses $license -LicenseOptions $LicenseOptions
  } 
}

You can, of course, use your Write-Host/Read-Host combination again, to allow for colored output. The basics are the same.

Tried that but its coming back with an error:

New-MsolLicenseOptions : Cannot bind argument to parameter 'AccountSkuId'
because it is null.
At C:\Scripts\ApplyO365LicenseChoices.ps1:22
char:58
+   $LicenseOptions = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId $license
+                                                          ~~~~~~~~

Sorry, I didn't check your remaining code. You didn't use $AccountSkuId, but $license, in the cmdlets.
#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
$PackageName = "ApplyLicenseO365"
$logDir = "c:\Windows\Temp\"
$inputCVS = "c:\Windows\Temp\Users.csv"
$logFile = "$logDir\Apply_License_Log.txt"

#--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

do {
  $resp = Read-Host @"
  1 - DESKLESSWOFFPACK for K1
  2 - STANDARDPACK for E1
  0 - none
"@
} while ('1', '2', '0' -notcontains $resp)

if ($resp -ne 0)
{
  $AccountSkuId = @('','SKU:DESKLESSWOFFPACK for K1','SKU:STANDARDPACK for E1')[[int]$resp]
  $UsageLocation = "US"

  $LicenseOptions = New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId $AccountSkuId

  #Import CSV File
  Import-Csv $inputCVS | foreach {
    $getUsername = $_.User
    Set-MsolUser -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -UsageLocation $UsageLocation
    Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName "$getUsername" -AddLicenses $AccountSkuId -LicenseOptions $LicenseOptions
  } 
}
