Get familiar with the OurFamilyWizard calendar tools with these frequently asked questions.
Will my co-parent be able to see the parenting schedule I entered?
- Yes. Parenting schedules are shared between co-parents. Additionally, both you and your co-parent are able to update all shared parenting schedules.
What's the easiest way to document exceptions to our regularly scheduled parenting time?
- The simplest way to document exceptions to your parenting schedule is by using either the Trade/Swap™ or Holiday scheduling tools.
I got an alert that my co-parent created a new event. How do I find it?
Every time your co-parent creates an event on the OFW calendar, you'll receive a System Message that will contain details and a link to view the event. You can find your system messages on the Message Board.

- For exceptions to your parenting schedule, use the Holiday tool.
- For one-time modification requests, use the Trade/Swap™ tool.
With the OurFamilyWizard Holiday Schedule Builder, you can add holidays and other special occasions to your calendar with ease. If holiday plans ever create exceptions to your parenting schedule, those updates will be made automatically without any need to modify the schedule directly.
Holidays can be used for vacations, birthdays, graduations, or whenever your family needs to document one-time changes that have been agreed upon in advance.
The patented Trade/Swap™ tool clarifies parenting time modification requests, minimizing confusion and the conflict that stems from miscommunication.
