Child and third-party accounts are optional, free accounts that can be added and removed by either parent.
In this tutorial:
Creating accounts for children, grandparents, bonus parents, and other family members
To create accounts for children or third-parties, such as grandparents or stepparents, you must first select the "My Account" tab.
- On the left side of the page, click "User Management."
- In the box titled "Child and 3rd Party Accounts," you'll see two options:
- Add Child: Select this option to create a child account. A name is required to create the account; however, both the phone number and email address fields are optional.
- Add 3rd Party: Select this option to create a third-party account. Provide the name and email address of the person you'd like to invite to the account. A phone number is optional.
- Click 'Add' in the upper left-hand corner to create the account. If provided, login information will be sent immediately to their email address.
Removing a Child or Third-Party Account
Child or third-party accounts can be deleted by either parent. To do so, you must first select the “My Account” tab.
- On the left side of the page, select "User Management."
- In the box for Child and 3rd Party Accounts, look under the 'Actions' column. You will see a link titled "Remove" next to each of your child or third-party users.
- Select "Remove" to remove an account's access to OFW. Child and third-party accounts can be reactivated by either parent at a later time.
Child and Third-Party Account Access
Child and third-party accounts have restricted access to the information within OurFamilyWizard. These accounts allow children, grandparents, bonus parents, and other family members to:
- View the family calendar, including parenting schedules, holidays, and public events created by parents.
- Use the message board to send and receive messages with other users. Child and third-party accounts do not have access to the correspondence between co-parents.
- Create and view journal entries.
Note: Child and third-party accounts have no access to the Expense Log and Info Bank portions of the OFW website.
