NutriAdmin allows you to store your client data in a tidy and organized way. There are two kinds of data in each client record you store in the software:

  • Questionnaire data (completed by clients for you)
  • Private notes data (written by you during, or after a consultation with your client)

Within questionnaire and private notes data, NutriAdmin sub-divides fields into categories. This article will teach you what is the importance of categories, how to manage them, and how they can help you be more organized.

What are categories?

When you review any of you client records, either checking questionnaire data or private notes, you will notice a list of categories on the right hand side of your screen.

Clicking on any category name will jump the position of your screen to the appropriate kind of data. These categories are designed to ensure you always know where everything is. By default, NutriAdmin includes the following categories:
