Sign inSign in to the site with the username you chose, and your password.
Create a calendarOnce you are signed in, you will see the screen below. CoparentCalendar automatically created your first calendar for you. You can begin adding activities and events right away.
Enter informationThe default view for the calendar is the month view. From here you can start entering anything that you want to share with your coparent, or others. Days your kids are with you, and days they are with your coparent. Professional development days at school. Sports practices and games. Music lessons. Field trips. Playdates with friends. Deadlines for registrations or payments.
To add an item from the month view to your calendar, simply find the date that the item occurs on, and click the '+' sign that you can see in the top right corner. Clicking this will bring up a window for you to enter the details.
You can also click 'Add event' at the top right side of the calendar window.
Different viewsAlong the top of the calendar, you can see tabs of 'today', 'day', 'month', and 'year'. Clicking on these tabs changes your view of your calendar. You can add new activities from any of these views simply by clicking the 'Add event' at the right hand side of the screen.
You will see that there is also a tab labelled 'manage' along the top of the screen. It is from here you can create additional calendars, and share them with other people.
Share your calendarsYou can share any of your calendars with whoever you want. Your coparent. Your parents and your coparent's parents. Family friends who are part of your children's lives and activities. Your babysitter.
Share with anyone who you want to be kept up to date about your kids' activities.
Click on the manage tab, and you will see the screen below.
Click on 'share', and you can enter the email address of the person you want to share that calendar with. Once you enter it in, CoparentCalendar will know to allow access to the person at that email address.
CoparentCalendar won't send an email to them to let them know you have shared a calendar with them. You will need to do that from your own email. They can then register on CoparentCalendar and they will be able to see the calendar you shared, and enter information in it, too.
You can create additional calendars if you want to. And share them the same way.
That's ItThat's probably all that you need to use CoparentCalendar. We hope you find it a useful tool.
