Search and Filter:

  • Search by recipe name.
  • Filter recipes by criteria such as Product group name, Recipe category, Online, Recommended, Language, and Rating.

Batch operations: Activate, inactivate, and delete one or more selected recipes.

  • Activate: A new recipe is inactivated by default. Click Activate for this recipe to set the status to Activated. Multiple recipes can be selected and activated in the same task.
  • Inactivate: Select a recipe and click Inactivate, so it disappears from the app.
  • Delete: The deletion cannot be undone. Proceed with caution.

OEM Recipes and Receive recipes: Copy recipes in bulk across accounts to simplify recipe sharing. Up to 20 recipes can be copied in the same operation.

Test Allowlist: Add accounts to the allowlist to test certain recipes in a canary release.

Set Basket: Enable the basket feature for one or more apps. Thus, a basket icon appears for a recipe in the specified app. Users can add required ingredients to the basket and sort the ingredients, for example, by recipes. Users can also modify the weight of ingredients, and share the list of ingredients. The basket feature can be enabled or disabled for one or more OEM apps on the platform.

Recommend: Click Recommend in the Operation column for an activated recipe. This way, this recipe can appear at Home > Recommended Recipes in the app.

Recipe categories

Recipes are classified into two categories: level-1 and level-2. For example, fried chicken belongs to meat as the level-1 category and chicken as the level-2 category. You can edit a recipe category, including Category Name, Multilingual Settings, Category Type, and Image.

Add Category:
Enter a recipe category name and upload the category image. Set at least one multilingual option in the Multilingual Settings field. The specified multilingual option appears in the app.
To create a level-2 category, you must select a level-1 category.

Import ingredients from an ingredient library such as the Chinese Food Composition Table, and edit basic information about the ingredients, multilingual settings, and nutrition facts. The nutritional values can be adjusted based on the benchmark values. Then, go to the Recipes section and link the ingredients with a recipe to show the ingredients and nutrition facts of the recipe in the app.

If nutrition facts do not need to appear in a recipe, set Enable Ingredient Library to No when you edit the recipe.
