Keeping your recipes organized in Prepear is super easy to do. In this tutorial, you’ll learn about how to create and manage your recipe using Cookbook collections.
To try for yourself what you’re about to see on my screen, make sure you have at least a few recipes already added to your Cookbook.
Tap the Recipes tab on your app, and toggle to My Cookbook.
Here you see all your bookmarked recipes together in one collection that we create for you automatically.
Let’s try sorting some of these recipes in a new way. Tap “Add a Collection” near the top of your screen, and give your collection a name.
You have the option of inviting friends and family to collaborate with you on your new collection. Collaborators can see and add recipes to the collection, but only you, the owner, are able to remove recipes.
Tap the “Plus” symbol under “Collaborators” to invite people from your friends list to your collection. Tap “Add” next to the names of your invitees, then tap “Save” in the top right corner when you’re finished.
Now we’re back on the main collection creation page, and we’re almost finished. Review the Privacy Settings and select the one that’s right for you.
Most of our users keep their recipe collections public, so other home cooks can be inspired by their meal ideas.
Ready to save it and start adding recipes? Click “Save” in the top right corner of your app.
There’s your collection! Tap the big “Plus” to add some recipes. You’ll see a list of all your bookmarked recipes, ready for you to sort.
If you need to remove recipes from a collection, side-scroll on the collection in the main page of your Cookbook, until you see the “Add or Remove Recipes” box. Tap it, then toggle to “Remove Recipes” to select which ones you want to take out.
You can also add more recipes to your collection OR remove recipes from inside the collection, by tapping the “Add or Remove Recipes” box there.
Make sure to tap the green “Save” button at the top of your screen when you’re done making edits.
If you decide to delete an entire collection, you can do so by entering the collection detail screen and tapping “Edit” at the top of the screen. Scroll to the bottom of the page and tap “Delete Collection.”
Keep in mind, when you delete a collection, the recipes in the collection don’t disappear from your Cookbook. You can still see the recipes in your “My Bookmarked Recipes” collection.
That’s your tour of recipe collections! Have fun getting organized.
