Meal Schedule Searching is now available

As I mentioned in the previous post, we've released the search feature for the site. It's only been mildly tested, so please if you find any bugs just send us an email. This tool is meant to provide those of you who lost an invite link or heard about a schedule the ability to contact the coordinator and get what you need.

As of now, we aren't providing direct access to meal schedules because they contain personal information about the people and families they are for, and we want to make it a little bit harder for Spammers, lurkers and potential ID thieves to get your information.

You'll also notice this blog feed directly available on our home page. Those of you wanting updates to the site & service can subscribe to the blog using email or an RSS reader.

New Meal Schedule Quick Search

A few people have asked about searching meal schedules. While we understand the need, especially since we all delete/lose emails easily, we still care about the privacy of the families/people whom the schedule is for. That said, we are going to be rolling out a new search tool that will allow you to have limited search for existing meal schedules based on the schedule title. Usually, the title has the families name included.

This new search feature does come with some limitations however. We are restricting the search results to include only the title of the schedule, the zip code of the drop-off address and the email contact for the coordinator. What this search tool allows is for people who heard about the schedule but didn't receive an invite, they can request the link from the coordinator. Also, people who lost their invite link can now search for the schedule and ask the coordinator to resend it.

We expect this feature to be rolled out in the next week or so! I will post to the blog announcing that it is ready.

Password Request Feature Added

Sorry about the gap in new posts. As of a few weeks ago, a new password request tool has been added to the site. Now you can request & receive your password instantly, and I can have more time to add more important things to the site (like searching for Meal schedules...almost done!) If you find any issues, please let me know.
