Secrets of Success

Food Tracking Changes



I discovered something I didn't know we can do (though maybe other members know this?): If you add a food like 1 cookie and later eat a second cookie, instead of deleting the first one and re-adding it to list it as two cookies, you can click on the item on the Food Tracker, then when the new dialogue window opens, change the number in the servings field to 2, then click on "Save Changes" and the adjustment will be made. This is much easier!

  • SP is full of little tricks! I always tell those I refer to SP that the site is so full of stuff that it can be overwhelming at first. I discovered your tip a while back and thought I was just slow on the uptake, but it's obvious I am in good company!! - by MARYELLEN301
  • I use the Tracker all the time and never knew this shortcut.
    What a time saver this is going to be.

    Thank you so much for sharing it with us.
