Happy Mid-April! This week we’re excited to announce a few updates to Papaya Health. When you log in to Papaya Health, you will notice a few new things:
You can remove clients from your account
In the clients page, you now have the ability to remove clients. To remove a client, click on the “trash can” icon next to the client you’d like to remove. You will then be presented with a dialog box that will ask you to confirm the action.
Please note that if you accidentally remove a user from your account, you’ll need to contact us to re-add the client since this functionality currently does not exist.
New menu plan actions
In the menu plan screen, you will notice that things have changes. Menu plans now show up in the list as boxes. To view a menu plan, hover over the name and click. When you hover over each box, two new options will show up – the ability to copy a menu plan (double box icon) and the ability to delete a menu plan (the trash can icon).
Besides the design changes, all the other functionality on this screen remains the same.
At this time, we’re in active development of “version 2” of our recommendation engine (the system that automatically creates menu plans). With this new update, we will be expanding the control that you have over the creation of menus so you can further tailor menus for each client. We’re incorporating all the feedback we’ve received during the past year into this update so we’re very excited to be working on this major update to our platform! We expect to roll out this new version over the summer, in phases. So stay tuned, and as always, please let us know if you have ideas for us!
You asked for it and now it’s here! This week we launched an update to Papaya Health that includes two of our most-requested features: the ability to add your own recipes and the client app. Additionally, the client app introduces the ability for enhanced collaboration with your clients. Clients are able to journal their meals and you can access their journals from within Papaya Health.
Share menu plans with clients
The new client app allows you to electronically share menu plans with your clients. From the app, clients can take their menu plans and add them to their calendar. Once they place their meals on the calendar, they can create a grocery list for however many days they’d like to shop for.
To invite a client to the app, click on the airplane icon next to the client name.
They will receive an email with a link to set their password and download the Papaya app. This video shows how to use the client app:
View client journals
In addition to being able to view their menu plans and create grocery lists, the client app also allows your clients to journal their meals. You can then view their food journals from your web app. To see how the feature works, check out this video:
Add your own recipes
Yes!!! This is the most anticipated feature of Papaya Health! You can now add your own recipes to Papaya and then include them in your client menu plans.
Nutrition power for all
To start using all these features, log in to Papaya Health! And as always, if you have any questions on how to use these features or if you have requests for additional functionality, feel free to contact us!
We are so excited to see how you use these enhancements! Our primary goal this year is to empower you to help even more people to take ownership of their nutrition. This release is the first of many to address the needs of telehealth providers.
