I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".
(thinking…)

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Separate view and edit modes

    Tapping on an ingredient opens the edit mode. Make it open the view (read) mode instead with an option to start editing the ingredient in a separate view.

    • Database of ingredient densities

      Save time not having to manually enter densities for common ingredients such as flour.

      This function can either be accessible via ingredient search (ingredients automatically come with density filled in) or by referencing the database while specifying ingredient density.

            • Select different units for sub-recipes

              Currently the unit used for the sub-recipe is automatically locked to the yield unit of that recipe. This new feature would allow you to specify a different unit.

              Units can be units of mass (e.g. kilogram, pound) or volume (e.g. fluid ounce, litre), or abstract units (e.g. slice).

              This feature would also allow the user to specify conversion for recipes between different units types (e.g. slice to gram).

                    • Specify ingredient wastage

                      Currently, edible portion (EP) is used to indicate this information. The new feature would allow you to alternate between the two modes of data entry.

                      • List groups while editing an ingredient

                        This would save time as alternatively the user needs to tap on Groups to show if the ingredient has already been entered into a group.

                        • Select multiple ingredients at a time to add to category

                          Currently each ingredient must be categorized one by one which is not time efficient. Have an option to quickly select multiple ingredients or select all ingredients from the list.

                          • Sort ingredients by category

                            Be able to sort (order) the ingredients list by category while you are in Recipes tab and selecting ingredients to add to a recipe, or while you're in the Ingredients tab, or both.

                            Priority is Ingredients tab.

                                        • Add ability to create units of measurement that can be shared across all ingredients

                                          Currently, abstract units (e.g. each) are tied to a single ingredient. This feature would allow you to create custom units (e.g. pint) that require either mass or volume to be specified and can be used throughout the app.
