    Family Time - Can I extend time limits without the email?


    I would love to know if there is somewhere in the microsoft Family page where I can choose to extend screen time in different increments, like the email I get when my child asks for more time.

    :)

    Screen time will not extend

    Hello, I have a child as a family member. When she asks for more screen time no request is received by myself. When I try to extend or change screen time without the request, nothing changes. They are still locked out and I am unable to extend or remove
    screen time limits. This happens multiple times. It does not fix itself when I restart, reboot or sign out/sign in again on both computers (mine or a microsoft family account accessed form any device). This is really, frustrating. I have followed the suggestions
    from other forums and the suggestion on the family help page (reboot computer).

    Thank you for your help.
