Sharing and Printing Your Actual Time Calendar

Your actual time calendar can be a convincing tool when you want to change your parenting schedule or motivate the other parent to follow the schedule. You might show the calendar to the other parent, a judge, a mediator, etc.

You have three options for sharing your calendar, explained below: export it, print it or save it as a PDF.

For all the options, your first step is to click the "actual time" tab in Custody X Change. (On a phone, you may need to hit the "more" option first.)

You can also save and print your actual time report, which breaks down parenting time using charts.

Exporting your calendar

Exporting your actual time calendar means you download its data to a file, which you can then upload to a calendaring app (like Google Calendar or Outlook) or to a spreadsheet.

  1. Click the "export" button above your actual time calendar. (On your phone, it may appear as a gray box with a "share" arrow pointing right.)

  2. Choose the dates to download and whether you want both parents' or one parent's time.

  3. Hit "export to ICS" if you want to import your data into a calendaring app like Google Calendar or Outlook.

    Hit "export to CSV" if you want to look at your actual time data with a spreadsheet tool like Excel.

  4. Your device will begin downloading a file. Follow instructions from your calendaring or spreadsheet tool to upload it there.

When you make changes to your actual time calendar, you'll need to do a new export in order to see the changes reflected.

Printing your actual time calendar
  1. Click the "print preview" button that appears above your actual time calendar. (On your phone, the button may be a gray box with a printer image.)

  2. At the top of the preview you're taken to, select which months to print: the next 12 months, the next 24 months or a custom period.

  3. If you want to print in black and white, uncheck the box titled "color."

  4. Click "print" to send the document to your printer.

Saving your actual time calendar as a PDF

A PDF is ideal if you want to share a printable image of your calendar via email or another electronic method.

  1. Follow the steps for printing above.

  2. Instead of clicking "print," click "save as PDF." (On your phone, the button may appear as a green box with a document icon.) A download will begin automatically.

Custody X Change tracks your actual parenting time in calendar and report formats.
