Searching for foods tmallett2016 — Jan 26, 2017 07:22AM PST

When I search for foods in the diary page the app does not search the data base, only the "recent, frequent etc" headings and tells me this food is not there.

Thanks for posting and sorry for any trouble. it sounds like you are using our mobile app, is that right? When using the app, entering your keywords into the search field, without taping Search or the magnifying glass icon in your keyboard, the app will look in whichever list you have selected. If you then click Search or the magnifying glass, it will then switch to searching the public database.

If the item that you are looking that you are looking for i expected to be in your recent or frequent list and is not being found, please check your list sorting option. In iOS you will see a Setting button with a gear icon in the lower left, while on android you will tap the 3 dot icon in the upper right, followed by Meal Filter. Set it to all meals and then try your search once more.

Warm Regards,
Logan
