How Do I Use Collections?
Collections are a simple way to organize all your content any way you want.
They give you the ability to group recipes and plans into folders. Many of our users find it helpful to create a collection for each of their clients to organize what they've sent or shared with them.
You can access your collections by selecting the Collections tab.
To get you started, we have created a collection titled "My Favorites" where you can add your favourite recipes and plans for easy access.
To create a new collection, scroll to the bottom of Collections and click the New collection button:
Give your collection a title and, a description or tags (optional) then click the Create Collection button:
Clicking the ★ of a collection will make it a "priority" and maintain its position near the top of your collections list. This will become more useful as you add more and more collections.
Add to collection
You can easily add recipes or plans to your collections by clicking the Add button when viewing a collection, searching for the item you would like to add, and then clicking the Add Item button from within the dialog.
However, the better way to add recipes or plans to your collections is directly from the source. As you scroll through the Recipes tab, click the ••• menu button for a given recipe, click Add to collection, then choose your desired collection(s) from within the "Add" dialog, and when you're ready click the Add Recipe button:
You can also add plans to your collections from the Planner by clicking the ••• menu button for a given plan, clicking Add to collection, choosing your desired collection(s) from within the "Add" dialog, and when you're ready clicking the Add Plan button:
Here are some different Collections you might want to create to organize your recipes and plans:
- "Want-to-Make Recipes"
- “Dinners under 500 Calories”
- “High Fiber Breakfast Ideas”
- “Meal Prep Dinner Ideas”
Additionally, you could use collections to:
- Keep track of what recipes and plans have been sent to a client
- Organize recipes by health condition (i.e. "For High Cholesterol," "For IBS-C," "Diabetes-Friendly Desserts" etc.)
- Group together multi-week meal plans so they're all in one place
