Batch Export enables the download of multiple foods, logs, recipes or costs added in one file. This is accessed from Start>Batch Jobs>Batch Export
This batch export is based on your client/participant group folders, but you can also select food diaries individually:
Once you have selected food diaries you wish to download from the meals/day logs tab, you can choose two output types from the dropdown at the bottom of the log list.
1. ‘Detailed Food File’ provides a full food file, showing every food consumed by each participant complete with any custom fields included. This is useful for creating pivot tables or for data import into SPSS.
On the ‘Detailed Food File’ option, recipes can be expanded out to their ingredient components for more comprehensive analysis on contributions at the food category level. Note this requires the diet logs to have been built using composite recipes made from specific ingredients, rather than using the average sample data provided in Standard Reference databases.
2. The ‘Daily Totals and Averages’ download will present a table showing each participants average intake, including standard deviation.
Choose which recipe groups or individual recipes you would like to export out in batch.
There are two types of exports to choose from for recipes:
1. Excel: This will export your recipe data onto one excel sheet
Choose 'Expand Recipes' to break the recipes chosen down to their individual ingredient sub-components. This is particularly useful for food group analysis.
2. PDF: This will download individual pdfs of your chosen recipes instead
This will download all information from your foods in batch. The foods shown on this file are those that you have added to your account. This will include foods you have copied over to your account from Nutritics databases for editing.
This will allow you to download a file including all costings attached to your foods.
