Can I copy meals from my friends?

If you have friends or family who have set their "Diary Sharing" options to allow you to view their diary, you may copy a meal from a friend's diary to yours, for faster logging when families and friends dine together.
On the Web
  • Visit your Friend's profile page and click "View Diary."
  • Click "Quick Tools" under the meal you wish to copy, and then select "Copy to Today" or "Copy to Date." 
  • If your friend has added a fifth or sixth meal to his or her diary, you must also have a meal in this position of your diary before you can copy from those slots.
In our iPhone, iPad and Android apps
  • Open the "Friends" page
  • Tap on a Friend who has allowed his or her diary to be viewed by you, then tap "View Diary" or the Diary (book) icon
  • Tap the "wrench" icon next to the meal you wish to copy, then tap "Copy Meal to Date" or "Copy Meal to Today
  • App users may experience issues if their friends have used custom meal names.
