Can I add sub-categories/tags?

Yes, by tagging recipes with multiple tags, you can filter your recipes based on more than one tag.

For instance, if you had the tag ‘Main Dishes’ and ‘Beef’ and all of your main dishes that feature beef are tagged with those two tags, you can first choose to see recipes tagged with ‘Main Dishes’. To see your recipe tags, swipe right on the recipe list to open the pullout menu. Tap on any tag to display recipes with that tag. You can then add tags like ‘Beef’ to the filter to narrow down the search so that ChefTap only shows main dishes that feature beef.

Here’s how to add additional tags to a filter:

Android

When your recipe list is already being filtered by one tag, ChefTap will have a dark green bar at the top of the screen with the selected tag. To the left of that dark green bar, there is an ‘add tag’ icon. Tap it to add more tags to the filter.
