VITAL Online Helpful Hint – ‘Update All’ Functionality

VITAL hints

The new ‘Update All’ functionality in VITAL Online allows the Account Owner to update all ingredients, processing profiles and recipes in one process – rather than updating each recipe individually. In VITAL Online, if any ingredient, processing profile or Reference Dose used in a recipe is changed, the recipe must be ‘updated’ in order to carry the changes across to affected recipe.

In addition to the ability to ‘Update All’ outstanding recipes, a Comparison Summary Report will be created to show any changes to labelling outcomes as a result of the update process. The ‘Update All’ functionality is especially useful where there are large changes – for example, an update to Reference Doses which affects all recipes (e.g. the recent change from VITAL 2.0 to VITAL 3.0).

Instructions for updating all recipes are shown below:

1 – Click on the UPDATE button marked with a red circle in VITAL Online. Access this from the dashboard (click on the VITAL logo at the top left hand corner of screen which is marked with an arrow).

2 –  The count of Outdated Recipes is shown on the screen. Click on UPDATE ALL to start the update. The update may take a few minutes. Use the REFRESH button as required.

3 – When the update process is complete, a Comparison Summary Report will be created by each legislation. The report can be downloaded and used to check for any significant changes, such as changes to Labelling Outcomes.
