Using the Child-Info Tool: Overview
The Custody X Change child-info tool lets you store information about your children to access from anywhere.
You might use the tool to keep tabs on school information, clothing sizes, medical data, shopping lists and more.

Sharing information with the other parent
Entering your children's information into Custody X Change means you won't have to contact the other parent every time there's a change. Once you link accounts, your co-parent gets alerted whenever you update an item in the child-info tool.
To add or remove children — or to update their names and birth dates — click the "edit" link at the bottom of your child-info home page (next to the "children" section).
You can attach files to each form in the child-info tool. For example, you might want to upload a class schedule to the school information form or scanned images to the IDs form.
Each attachment can be no larger than 25MB, so photos and documents usually work better than videos.
Head to the form you want to add attachments to. Scroll to the bottom, hit "attach files" and select the items you want to upload from your device. When you're done, click "save."
When you return to that form, you'll see previews of any images you attached. For other files (like PDFs), you'll see download links.
To find an item you've entered into the child-info tool, type a keyword or phrase into the search bar at the top of your screen.
Searching on the child-info homepage searches the entire tool. Searching when you're in a form that has multiple entries (e.g., the medical visits form) searches those entries only.
To stop viewing results and get back to your original view, delete the search phrase.
