Using Multiple Custody Calendars

You can have more than one calendar in Custody X Change. This is helpful if your children follow different schedules or if you want multiple drafts.

Think of a calendar like a physical day planner; if your situation would require more than one planner, you'll probably want more than one Custody X Change calendar.

Creating additional calendars

Custody X Change automatically creates your first calendar when you open an account. To add additional calendars:

  1. Click the "calendar" tab. This is where your calendars and schedules live.

  2. Hit "calendars" at the top left of your screen. (On your phone, you may instead see a gray button with a flip calendar icon.)

    From the drop-down menu, select "manage calendars."

  3. You'll land in your calendar management console.

    To create a blank calendar, click "new calendar." If you'd rather make a copy of an existing calendar, hit the "duplicate" button below its name.

  4. A box will appear for you to enter a calendar name.

    Use any name that will help you distinguish this calendar from your others.

    If you don't enter a name, the app will apply one automatically ("Calendar" and then a number).

As soon as you hit "save," your new calendar is ready and open for you to work on. Click the "calendar" tab at the top of your screen to view it.

Renaming calendars

To rename a calendar, follow Steps 1 and 2 above to arrive at your calendar management console.

From there, click the "rename" button under the calendar you want to edit. Enter any name that will help you distinguish this calendar from your others, and hit save.

Moving between calendars

To change which calendar you're working on or viewing, first click the "calendar" tab.

Next, click the "calendars" button at the top left of your screen. (It may appear as a gray button with a flip calendar icon, if you're on a phone.)

Finally, select your desired calendar from the drop-down menu.

Bring calm to co‑parenting. Agree on a schedule and plan. Be prepared with everything documented.
