Frequently asked questions

How do I create a repeating/recurring food entry?

​If there is a food or drink that you regularly have at a certain time on certain days e.g. coffee between 6am – 9am, every weekday, you can quickly create similar repeating entries for up to three weeks ahead by creating just one entry of this food or drink first, then follow the steps shown below:

  • Create just one entry of the food or drink that you want repeated over the next one, two or three weeks, if it isn’t already logged in your current diary.

  • Tap and hold for about two seconds on the description of the food entry until check boxes appear beside it and select the check box of that entry.

  • Select the day(s) you want this entry to be repeated e.g. Monday, Tuesday etc and for how long, e.g. next week only, next two weeks or next three weeks. Then hit the 'Create' button to confirm your changes. Your diary will automatically update to now include these recurring entries sorted by the latest entry date first.
