Editing Your Custody Schedules

Your custody schedules are designed to develop alongside your family for years to come. If they need adjustments, you have several options, explained below.

For each adjustment, you'll begin by clicking the "calendar" tab. This is where your calendars and schedules live.

Next, you'll click the name of the schedule you want to work on or the adjacent "edit" button. Find both to the left of your calendar, or if you're on a phone, beneath your calendar.

You can get to the same place by clicking on your calendar where the schedule begins or ends. (You'll see a flag with the schedule's name).

Now you're ready to make your edits.

Rename your schedule

Find the box marked "name." Type in a new name, and hit save.

Move your schedule

To change when your schedule begins, locate the boxes under "starts." Enter a new date and/or time.

If this schedule will override your regular schedule for the same period every year, make sure the box is checked. (This works for summer breaks, seasonal jobs and more.) Then you'll see options to specify start and end dates for future years.

Hit "save" when you’re done.

Shift your schedule

You can also shift schedules (as long as they don't repeat weekly). This changes when each parent's custody time falls without changing the pattern, as seen below.

Hit "shift day" or "shift week."

You'll see the change reflected on your calendar immediately. If you like it, hit "save."

Delete your schedule

To get rid of your schedule entirely, hit "delete" toward the bottom of the page. If you change your mind, hit the "undo" button that appears on your screen for several seconds.

Add a repeating visit

To add a visit, click on the calendar where you want the visit to begin, rather than clicking where the schedule begins or ends. Then you can click and drag to adjust the visit's start and end times.

Alternatively, you can click on "exchanges" or the adjacent "edit" button, beneath your schedule's name. Find these to the left of your calendar, or if you're on a phone, beneath your calendar.

When you see a box labeled "new visit," you can select which parent gets the visit from the drop-down menu. You can also adjust the starting and ending dates and times here.

The visit will repeat according to the rest of your schedule. (For some schedules, you'll see additional repetition options.) To add nonrepeating time, use one-time changes instead.

Adjust a repeating exchange

You can move an exchange simply by clicking and dragging it on the calendar. Or you can click the exchange, then use the boxes that appear next to or under your calendar.

The boxes let you choose the exchange's new date and time. Check "repeating" to have changes to apply to future visits. You can then select how often the changes appear — weekly, daily, etc.
