Changing Your Activities Settings

Your activities center is where you enter events that don't affect who has custody or visitation. It's a place for tracking where you need to be and when you need to be there.

Once you know how to enter and edit activities, personalize your settings to get the most out of this tool. You can change what appears in your activities center, who has access to it, and how you're reminded of upcoming events.

See below for details on adjusting each of your activities settings.

Viewing the activities center

Based on the custody calendar you last viewed, the background of the activities center is lightly shaded to indicate which parent has custody time that day. (You can assign each parent a color in your account settings.) You also see the planned exchange times.

If you haven't made a schedule yet or you last viewed a custody calendar without a schedule, the background of the activities center is all one color and you don't see exchange times.

Viewing children

If you have multiple children, it may be easier for you to view their activities separately or in groups. With a click, you can show and hide them. To choose whose activities display:

  1. Click the "activities" tab.

  2. Click the gear icon at the top right of the screen.

    A list of your children will open. If set to appear in your activities center, they'll have check marks to the left of their names.

  3. To select or deselect a child, click their name. You'll see their content appear or disappear in the activities center instantly.

You may change the color assigned to each child so that you can tell which activities belong to which child. Just click "change colors" beneath the list of names, check off the colors you want, and hit "save."

Linking accounts

To let another Custody X Change subscriber view and edit your activities, link accounts by visiting your account settings.

You can also sync to an outside calendar.

This is great for coordinating with the other parent or older children.

Setting up notifications

You'll be notified when a linked account edits your activities.

If you want, you can be notified of your child's upcoming activities. Set the notification when you enter an activity into Custody X Change.

Custody X Change automatically sends these notifications inside the app (under the bell icon at the top right of your screen). To receive notifications outside the app too, adjust your notifications settings.
