Last Updated: 23 March 2024

Hello everyone,

Spring is in the air, and so are some major Forkto updates! We’re always working behind the scenes to deliver exciting new features and refine your existing experience. Let’s explore everything fresh and improved in this latest release.

Spotlight Feature: Revamped Food Records

Temperature logging and traceability are crucial for food safety. That’s why we’ve completely overhauled our Food Records feature. You’ll find:

  • Blazing Speed: Record temperatures for Cook, Cool, Reheat, Cold serve & hot hold processes faster than ever.
  • Intuitive Design: Enjoy a streamlined experience designed to minimize clicks and save you time.
  • Maximum Traceability: Enhanced tracking for every step of the process, ensuring compliance and accountability.

We’re so excited about this revamp, we’ll be dedicating an entire blog post to it soon! In the meantime, head to the ‘Food Records’ section of your platform to check it out.

Additional Feature Highlights

  • Temperature Control Enhancements: Establish temperature bounds for fridges and freezers with color-coded alerts (Red, Amber, Green) for immediate visual feedback on food safety.
  • Data Tables Get a Makeover: Experience improved data tables throughout the platform with better styling, faster search, smoother export functionality, and an enhanced mobile experience.
  • Wiki Links & Video Demos: Get instant help with the new (?) icon on each page. Access feature-specific wiki entries and even quick video tutorials for certain sections.
  • Location Dropdown: Multi-location users rejoice! Easily switch between your managed locations using the new location dropdown at the top of relevant pages.

Quality of Life Improvements

We’re always listening to your feedback, and we’ve made numerous smaller changes focused on making Forkto even smoother to use:

  • Streamlined Product Creation: Experience a more efficient workflow when adding new products.
  • Freshened Business Profile Page: Your business profile has received a polished makeover for a professional presentation.
  • Packaging Intake: Seamlessly manage packaging intake to ensure accurate production and traceability.
  • Refreshed Reports View: Reports now have a more spacious layout for easier navigation.

Behind the Scenes: Performance Boost

We didn’t just improve the features you see; we also rewrote large swaths of code for a significantly faster Forkto experience. Expect noticeable speed gains across the board, even on less than ideal internet connections.
