Hi Joemar,


Could you please clarify if you would like to block the client from sending messages to you or receiving invitations for an interview? Thank you.

A block prevents the sending and receipt of messages and invitations to interview.

This is very simple, go to your message center and click on the client chat and then click  on the client name and you will see block option.

Is this option only available if you haven't already worked with a client? I have a client who was basically horrible and he's asking about more work. I'd like to be able to block him but I am not seeing this option where it's shown in the screen cap above.  I see add to group but nothing below it.

Hi Jessica,


Do you still have an active contract with the client? You won't be able to block a client in Messages if you have an active contract with them.

I do. That makes sense now. When that's at a close, I will do it. Thanks!

Hi James,


I see Muhammad has already shared instructions on how to block a user in Messages, please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you Muhammad and Vladimir,


I hadn't noticed that I could click on the names within the chat window itself.


Problem solved. Great Smiley Happy

Is there a way to block a client whose job postings I dont want to see at all?

I know I can block him once I placed a bid and initiated a conversation. But without placing a bid, is there a way to block a buyer whose job postings I dont want to see at all.
