    I was playing with the calculator this morning and I had a couple of ideas. Maybe someday?

    1. I would like an option to download my recipe for the use in a spreadsheet. So, either in an existing spreadsheet format, or maybe in comma-separated text, or whatever you call it.

    2. In the public database, I would like a search option to be able to search for a recipe based on the author name. Maybe it could go within the "Recipe Details" search?

    I second the suggestion for adding a search by author

    Hi,
    A really simple but helpful addition would be a date box- the times I have forgotten when I made my soap is ridiculous! Just a box I could fill in, no fancy stuff needed. Thank you!

    If it's not already planned (or already there - but I can't find it), adding in a link to the INCI name for each ingredient in your database would be very helpful! If it's there already, I don't know how to find it.

    SoapCalc includes this feature, but only lists the 'before saponification' INCI names. I would like to see both. Some people list by what goes into the pot, whereas other list what comes out of the pot, so both the before saponification INCI names and the after saponification INCI nomenclature would be a desirable inclusion.

    I do agree with 100% with @earlene. I would love to see that added too.

    Plus the date feature suggested by @Catherine Branch, which is some very simple but also very important information.
