Anne thank you very much;
1 - I have not seen the remove multiple foods button you mentioned, I'll look for it. Even that would help me a lot - I found it, bad eyes I guess - that is even better than the suggestion about a delete meal button.

2 - I have been changing my grouping the way you mention. The drawback has been deleting the meal if it doesn't fit for that day. #1 will solve that.

3 - I have voted on a few foods that were wrong but don't usually take the time since I don't know if it does any good. What happens behind the scenes when I vote on those foods that are incorrect, or correct?

Again thanks Anne

Hi,

Thanks for our comments and suggestions--I will pass them along!

There are a few features I wanted to make sure you're aware of. We do have an option to delete multiple food items (without the page refreshing) by clicking the button towards the bottom of the tracker that says "Remove multiple food items." That will open a pop-up window that allows you to place a check next to any of the foods you want to delete and then all will be taken off at once.

If you want to change an item in a food grouping without saving the change, you can edit items after you add the grouping to your day (this process doesn't take any more steps than changing the item before you added the grouping would). Once you do add the grouping, you can click on the item you'd like to change. Similarly, clicking to delete the item and add another would take the same number of steps if it is done before the grouping is added or after.

Regarding the accuracy of nutritional items of foods entered by other members, the best thing to do is to vote on the accuracy of the item. When you click to view the item's information, there is small box on the top right of the window that asks you to verify the accuracy (or mark it is incorrect). Thanks!

--Anne

I have been using this system for some time. I'm pretty good so would be surprised to learn these items can be done but if so, please tell me how:

1 - When I enter foods anticipating a meal or checking total nutritional value of that meal then I change that meal, now I have to delete every item one by one & wait for the page to refresh. PLEASE INSTALL A DELETE MEAL BUTTON that deletes all foods in that meal.

2 - When reviewing a food grouping (under edit grouping) I'd like to be able to edit (items or amounts) that group, then add the edited version to my tracker WITHOUT SAVING THE ORIGINAL FOOD GROUPING first. Very much like the substitutions that are possible on the SP generated meals.

3 - I track multiple nutrients and would like a VIEW ALL NUTRIENTS TRACKED FOR THIS MEAL button installed instead of the entire day only. Even a report that would do this is fine

OFFER TO HELP - I'm a bit anal like many & want all nutritional values in listed food to be correct. I mostly enter my own although have found some entered by other users that are correct. I trust the SP entered food more but there is so little of it. HOW CAN I WORK WITH YOU TO IMPROVE THIS?
