in Recipes
I was wondering if I make a personal recipe is there a way to send it to another member ? For example I make a meal and my wife wants to log it,is there a way to email or send the recipe to her ?

    You can not share recipes directly with another user, and another user will not find your recipes through a search. Your recipes will be displayed in the search results only when you perform a search.

    ​There is a workaround to log another user's Recipe nutrition information. Once you log a Recipe to one of your Meals, another user who has access to your Food Diary can copy the Meal containing the Recipe item from your Diary to their Diary, then delete any unwanted entries from that copied Meal.

    ​Please see these articles, and search for other helpful articles, on the MFP Help/FAQ pages...

    It would be really useful to be able to share the actual recipe. Often we have leftovers the next day and it might be slightly different (like last night we had a soup with some toppings, today I am having it without the toppings for lunch), but if I'm not the one who logged the recipe I have no way to edit it and have to start over from scratch, or get my boyfriend to do it for me, log it, copy it to my diary then he deletes it from his. Which is a bit of a ridiculous work around. Please can recipe sharing be a feature?

    Go to the three lines at the top left hand corner. Open it and scroll down to the friends header. Send your partner a friend request which he will then accept. Now you have a direct link to each other. Go to your meal and open it. Press the share button in blue on the right hand side of the meal. Your partners link will appear. Press the link and and a pop-up will appear on your partners screen. It will have highlighted in blue at the bottom Save for later. Press and the meal is saved under meals in your partners My fitnesspal.
    Hope this helps.

    You can share recipes. Once it’s created and logged. Click the 3 little dots on that meal and share it via text. They can then open it and log it.
