In this month's edition of our Tips and Tricks series, our Support Team Director, Brandy, discusses building Recipes in Details. If you missed our live webinar, here is a complete session recap.
The Worksheet: Building Recipes
The Design Worksheet is an Event Floral Design playground! As a best practice, we recommend filling up your Design Board with anything you might use for your recipes. If you're not sure how to do that, check out the article How do I add/remove photos & ingredients on my Design Board?
Before we get started, we want to share that you are not required to build a recipe for every line item, however, this will give you accurate information like your stem counts. If you're sending off a quick quote, you can fill in the qty and price, add a photo and a description, or build the recipe. What you do may differ depending on the stage of the planning process.
Starting your recipe with a recipe (inspiration) photo or ingredient:
Make sure you have your images uploaded to your Design Board and ingredients added - this will make it much easier! If you're unsure how to do this, check out How do I add/remove photos & ingredients on my Design Board? Click, hold, and drag your image to the '+' sign of the line item. Alternatively, you can click the '+' sign and select your image. Once you do either of the above, a recipe template will open.
To update the price (what your client will see on the proposal):
Click inside the 'Estimated Price' box and type in your custom price. It will automatically lock once you hit enter, but you can always unlock it if needed.
Adding and Editing Recipes in The Recipe Gallery
Click 'Add New' from the Recipe Gallery in the top-right corner.
The resulting window will include a blank slate to create a recipe, and fill in the applicable fields to build out the arrangement. It is often easiest to start by uploading a recipe image and then using it to inform what is entered in the rest of the fields!
Recipe Image: Click the 'Change/Upload Image' to select a photo from your computer to upload as the Recipe image.
Recipe Name: Enter a descriptive title; or whatever is going to be easiest to search for later when you need to locate and access the Recipe.
Description: Optionally, include a description of the arrangement, but keep in mind that it is meant for clients to view the proposal. So make it flowery!
Ingredients: Enter ingredients one at a time by clicking 'Add Ingredient', entering a search term, selecting the desired item from the resulting list, and then entering a quantity to finish adding that ingredient. Repeat these steps for each additional ingredient.
Copy Ingredient List: You will see a list symbol in the upper right-hand corner of the 'Ingredients' area. Clicking on this field will copy the list of ingredients to your computer 'Clipboard'.
Open a recipe and click the 'Edit' button at the bottom of the recipe modal to initiate, then refer to the steps above and save to complete!
