I wonder, if Upwork can apply the feature, message status ( Sent / Seen by Client or Freelancer ) so, it will be helpful. 

 

Also, A quick link in the Upwork messages Module for important info ( Like server login/username password   ) - Or a Filter with Tagging a Message, within a Client or Filter message by tag. 

 

A Way to send an email for an old client posting a new job?

Absolutely not. 

Dreadful idea and every time it is brought up, the vast majority don't want something so intrusive.  People respond when it fit into their schedule. The last thing a professional client or freelancer wants is the other party freaking out along the lines of "ABC read my message hours ago and never responded..."

What is stopping you from sending a message to the client from the old message room?

Or simply apply to the posted job. That's what it's there for.

I'll give an example of why this is one of the worst ideas that needs to die. And hopefully Upwork doesn't entertain it (again).

 

So a couple days ago I got a message from a client some time around 9pm my time. I like to look at the messages they send, but by this time I'm tired and don't want to respond. Usually, I'm drinking and relaxing but I just like to see the message in case it's 911 or just to know what I need to do the next day. I looked at the message and didn't reply until the next day because I wasn't able to reply.

 

If this dumb idea gets implemented, I gotta deal with people ranting that I saw the message and didn't answer. All it does is cause frustration when it's not necessary.

Noooooo.

I don't want to feel compelled to reply on a Friday/Saturday night after a bottle of gin. Regardless of booze consumption, I want to be able to reply when I'm ready to reply.
