Parenting Schedule / Events / Expenses / Reimbursements / Other Requests
The all-new AppClose uses multi-functional calendars to store, record, and share information with other connected or non-connected co-parents and third parties.
Our new calendaring system is organized into three different categories: Parenting, Me Time, Work / Professionals. Each category provides you with a way to more easily manage tasks, events, appointments, expenses, requests, and communications that specifically touch these areas of your life.
Our parenting calendar templates help you schedule or document anything related to parenting and kids.
To locate your parenting schedule, events, appointments, expenses, reimbursement requests, or other requests:
Go to your list of calendars where this information is now stored by date.

List of Calendars
The Parenting Calendar, Expenses & Requests, and/or Events & Activities calendars may have automatically generated for you depending on the type of information stored in your app at the time you downloaded AppClose 3.0.
If you have a parenting schedule set up, you will find it in your Parenting Calendar. (e.g. <child’s name> - Parenting Calendar). Each child will have his/her own parenting calendar, even if they share the same parenting schedule(s). You still have the ability to create a parenting schedule in one child’s parenting calendar and apply it to another child’s parenting calendar in one easy step, but this functionality also allows you to send swap days requests and create, edit, or delete a parenting schedule specific to each child when sibling schedules are different or change.
Your parenting time will be underlined in the color chosen for this parenting calendar. Your co-parent’s parenting time will be underlined in gray.
Trade Requests (*now called “Swap Days Requests” in the new app)
All trade requests that you created and sent to a co-parent or third party will be found in your parenting calendar (<child’s name> - Parenting Calendar) by date.
*Trade requests received by you will be found in your default calendar, but can easily be moved to a parenting calendar if you so choose.
