    Granting more screen time for child account does not grant more time.


    When my child requested to get more screen time, I granted 2 more hours via the email link, signed into my MS account, and verified that the request was approved to extend her time by 2 hours. However the computer still showed the expired lockout screen. Currently the only way to get rid of the lockout screen is to turn off screen time.


    Things that I've already done to try and fix the issue

    1. I've verified that the computer has the latest updates.
    2. I've verified that the user account is verified on that computer.
    3. I've sent another request for more time request and approved it.
    4. I've rebooted the computer and tried to login again.
    5. I've turned on and off screen time a few times to see if that fixes the issue.

    :)

    Family: Can a non-admin user grant more screen time?

    Hello,

    I have Microsoft Family set up for my child. When she surpasses her screen time, there is an option "My parent is here" and I can give her more time. I am an administrator on this desktop. My wife also has an account on this desktop, no admin, just a regular
    account and she can't grant my child more screen time. My wife's account is not listed in the "My parent is here" window.

    Is there an option to let non-administrators grant more screen time this way?

    My child can send a request for more screen time and my wife can agree, but this is not my question.

  3. Parent Permission Grant More Time

    SujataMoktan,

    I doesn't appear that you understand the issue. There is NO WAY to grant additional time. There is no button that says "Grant additional time". There is nothing. The message to the child says something about their request being sent but it seems to be
    sent into oblivion because I never received any request from the child.

    thanks.
