Menus help you save a group of planned events, like recipes, ingredients, and notes, to use again in the future. You can create menus that span one day, a full week, or even an entire month. Saved Menus can be easily dragged onto your Planner just like recipes.

Creating a Menu in the Menu Editor

  1. If the Menu pane is not already visible on your Planner, click the Menus button in the upper right header.
  2. Click the Add Menu button to add a new blank Menu in the Menu Editor.
  3. You can add recipes, ingredients, and notes to the Menu Editor, just like adding events to your meal planning calendar. Menus can extend from one day to 31 days. Changes are automatically saved just like meal planner.
  4. Optionally, update the new Menu title and click Rename.
  5. Exit out of the Menu Editor. Changes are automatically saved when you are editing your mens, so you can exit at any time and not lose your changes.

Creating a Menu from items already on your Planner

  1. Add the recipes, ingredients, and notes to your planner that you would like to include in your Menu.
  2. Click the Edit Plan button or click and drag a range of dates on your planner.
  3. Choose Save Menu from the "Select Action" dropdown menu.
  4. Choose the desired date range, events types, meal times, and a title for your menu.
  5. Click Confirm to save the Menu.

When creating a new menu it does not matter what dates you plan your items on. Menus only keep track of the events in relation to the date range, not the specific dates.

Adding Menus to your Planner

  1. If the Menu pane is not already visible on your Planner, click the Menus button in the upper right header on your planner.
  2. Click and drag the desired Menu to your Planner.
    • The items in your menu will display on your planner with the number of items included for each day as you drag the menu around.
  3. After you drop your Menu on your Planner, you'll be given the option to confirm your menu placement. If it's incorrect, be sure to click the Undo button so you don't have to manually remove all of the menu events from your planner.
