Import your data

Steps to import from a sample spreadsheet

  1. Make a copy of the sample spreadsheet in Google Spreadsheets, Excel, or Numbers.
  2. Enter your ingredient and/or price data into the spreadsheet. Do not alter the order of the columns.
  3. Export ingredient and/or price worksheet(s) inside the spreadsheet as CSV (see "How do I export a spreadsheet as CSV?") Note: you do not need to import the units worksheet.
  4. Email the exported CSV file(s) to yourself.
  5. Open the email on your iOS device and tap on each CSV file. (if you are not using the Mail app try tapping and holding on the CSV file until the action menu comes up)
  6. Tap the action button (looks like an arrow coming out of the top of a square, should be on one of the corners of your screen) and select Import with Fillet from the list of options (you may need to scroll through the options if you have many apps installed, if you are not using the Mail app tap the button "Copy to Fillet")
  7. Fillet will import your data. Tap Done.
