Note: You’ll need to be using version 7.1.0 or higher in order to access calendar view to be able to view past weeks/allowance periods.

You can view/approve chores from previous weeks/chore periods. To do this, follow the steps below:

  • Tap on the ‘Chores’ icon on your child’s tile from the main family dashboard

  • Tap on the date range showing at the top of their list

  • Here you can scroll down to select previous chore periods

Once you’ve selected a past chore period, you can then approve past chores and make a decision on any allowance periods that were missed. Any allowance periods that have actions outstanding will be shown in red so you can quickly see which past allowance periods need actioning.

Note: It's only possible to action chores in allowance periods where the allowance has not yet been decided. This means that if you have already made a decision on your child’s and you wish to change the amount they were paid, you will need to use the Boost ‘+’ or Remove ‘-’ on your child’s tile to change the amount they were given. You can add a customised note so your child knows why their balance has changed.


Question: How can I set my child’s chore setting so I have the chance to approve chores before an allowance decision is made?

Answer: If you’d prefer to get the chance to action chores before an automatic allowance decision is made, you’ll need to change their Chore Setting to “I’ll decide each time”. This will send you a notification on allowance day and allows you to action any outstanding allowance chores before deciding how allowance is paid out.
