Hi,

NITEMAN3D gave a great response. Here's one more tip. Although there is not a way to bulk move all manually entered items to Favorites like you ask, this way of getting your already created manual foods into Favorites may help:

- Go to your Nutrition Tracker page on our website
- Click the "Favorites" tab
- Under "Favorite Options", select "Edit List of Favorites"
- Click the button for "Add a food to your Favorites +"
- The window that pops up may mistakenly have the title "Create A New Food Grouping"--just ignore that title, it is the page you want
- Click the radio button near the bottom for "Search foods I've manually entered"
- Type part of the food name you want and click "Search"
- Select the food you want from the results list and click the "Add Food" button
- That food will now be in your Favorites list

I know it's a lot of steps; but, it worked well for me when I was wanting to do the same thing.

After you enter a food manually and right before you enter it into your tracker for the day, on the right side of the screen you'll see a very small checkbox that you have to check that says 'add this food to my favorites' and you have to do that each time you enter a new food manually. All is not lost, however. In the main screen for the tracker right under the data entry line for search, you'll see some checkboxes and one of them is "more". Click "more" and you'll see the option to search your manually entered foods. Hope that works for you.

I should add, when on the favorites tab I can get to editing my manually entered items but I cant see or use them from favorites. Very odd or am I missing something very obvious?

I have been away from SP for a while. I am sure this has been asked before. How do I bulk move all my manually entered items to my favorites. Getting to my manually entered items does not seem as simple as it used to be.

Thanks
