Ability to add "out of office" auto-response to invitations for interviews

Hello, 

 

I'm not sure where to post this thread and if this is wrong category please move it to the right place.

 

Are you(Upwork) considered adding option like "Out of the office" so when Freelancer choose this whenever someone contacted him/her it will receive automated messagem, like: "Thanks for conacting me. I would be unavailable for *insert period here*. I'll get back to you shortly?

 

Why I think we need such a thing:

 

1. When I'm not available I choose the option "Not Available" but I still receive invitations for projects/jobs/tasks and If I can't open and accept/decline the invitation in 24 hours this decrease my response rate.

 

Maybe one option here is to automaticaly response to invitations for interviews which the system counts as answered. Even if is auto-response. 

 

If there is such a feature and I missed it - please excuse me.

Oh, I really missed it. Still there is no option for incomming invitations for interviews, right?

 It's not easily found unless you're like me; with a compulsion to click on absolutely everything that can possibly be clicked just to find out what it does Smiley Happy

 

I have never used it, so I am not sure if it won't auto-respond to invites automatically. It would be neat if it did, and should not be too hard to implement if it didn't.

It's on left side on the messages page above the Recent and search bar.
