How to Add, Edit or Delete a Journal Entry

Your Custody X Change journal keeps you organized by storing notes about your child, the other parent and your custody case. It works best when you make regular, detailed entries. Find out how below.

Add a new entry

To begin, click the "journal" tab.

Then click the "new entry" button in the top right corner.

On the next screen, choose a date for your entry.

Then enter a few words to serve as a title.

Beneath that you have the option to add a more detailed description.

If you like, you can upload a file to provide additional information.

Finally, you can add as many tags as you want to group your entries. For example, you might tag entries with the name of the child concerned, in case you want to see all entries involving that child in the future.

The information you enter saves automatically. When you're done, hit the "back" button twice to see your new entry on the main page of your journal. (If the entry doesn't appear, click "filter" at the top of the page and adjust your filter settings to find it.)

Edit or delete an entry

First, click the "journal" tab to go to your journal's main page.

Click the entry you want to edit. (If it doesn't appear, click "filter" at the top of the page and adjust your filter settings to find it.)

On the next screen, hit "modify entry" in the upper right corner. You'll be taken to a screen with all of your entry's details.

If you're looking to delete the entry, find that button at the bottom of the screen.

If you're looking to make edits, they'll save automatically as you work. When you're done, hit the "back" button twice to see your new entry on the main page of your journal. (If the entry doesn't appear, click "filter" at the top of the page and adjust your filter settings to find it.)
