I use this feature a lot but wish I could say what meal I am copying it to. I typically eat the same foods, but not the same meals. So I want to copy something from lunch one day to dinner the next day. I end up having to copy it to lunch the next day then change each entry to dinner.
Or worse, if I have already logged lunch, copy it to lunch for a future date, then change each entry to dinner, then copy it back to the date I ate it. Lots of buttons to push, often I just wait till I get to a laptop.

Great app thanks. I didn't read all 85 posts but another great feature would be if you could copy some meals to multiple days. My diet is pretty much the same in the morning and would make it easier to just copy this to every weekday for instance.

I agree - either have the app automatically go to today once the meal is copied, or have it ask if you want to stay where you are or go to the day where the meal was copied to. It drives me nuts that I copy a meal to another day but then I'm left on the old day instead of being on the new day. Invariably I make some change to the meal each time, then realize I've done it on the old day instead of today and then I have to undo what I did on the wrong day and redo it on the right day.

Thank you for adding this feature! If I can add an enhancement.... add a copy to "today" rather than only having the date as an option. I rarely am positive what the date is. Also then after I copy the meal, a "go to today" button would be most helpful.

I'm looking forward to the new version! If I am following my food plan faithfully, I eat the same thing every Monday as every other Monday, Tuesday as every other Tuesday, etc. So being able to copy my food plan from week to week meal to meal and then just have to modify if I don't eat on plan would be fantastic!

I love the Sparkpeople iPhone app! It's one of my favorite things about my new iphone! I think that the Sparkpeople app is great, but it would be helpful to have the "Copy this meal to another day" option available on the app - I use this all the time on the website. Thanks!
