*If you are the "Non-custodial" parent and share your parenting schedule with the other co-parent, he/she will receive your parenting schedule in reverse as the custodial parent.  

The other co-parent must agree to accept your parenting schedule in order for it to be applied and viewed in his/her AppClose parenting schedule.

Once your co-parent accepts your schedule, the schedule will be added to his/her AppClose parenting schedule as stated above.  




Once your parenting calendar has been shared with the other co-parent, the co-parent’s calendar will display this “Merge” message. The co-parent will then need to choose the parenting schedule(s) he/she agrees to accept from the calendars available. If the other co-parent has already set up a parenting schedule then his/her parenting schedule will be deleted and substituted with any accepted calendars.



Click “Accept” if you agree.



Your periods of possession will be indicated with green circles.
