Hi there,
I am a dietitian at a small university. I have entered the recipes for some of our retail places and have the nutritional analysis completed. How can I now make these items accessible for public view so that a student could search for the item on their profile? Thank you!

Hey thanks for posting your question. While it is not currently possible to copy a recipe directly from another user’s recipe list, it is possible to copy recipes once they’ve been logged to the food diary as a meal, per the steps below.

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.

Warm Regards,
