I am elated to post the question here for the first time. Firslty, I must admit that I am glad to have an opportunity become a community member. And I am confident that I would learn a lot in here. It's been joyous journey so far on Upwork. As rapidly growing number of opportunities, I recenty created an Agency to add team members. Nevertheless, I am having trouble while adding the member to my Agency. While adding the member the alert box says "The invited hasn't been sent because the member you want to invite has active job candidacies". I was trying figure out on the issue. Meantime, I came across the community that I thought would better be able to know each other and figure out the issue. I would be grateful, if someone take a time to review the issue and get me the solution. 


Thank you

Hi Virani,


If you are inviting a freelancer to be an exclusive agency freelancer for your agency, please make sure that the freelancer does not have any proposals sent, interview invites or active candidacies as an independent freelancer. Make sure that they withdraw all proposals and then try to invite the freelancer again. Let us know should you continue to get any errors.

Hi, I want to create an agency and add current upwork users into it. Will the client communicate through the agency or the freelancer can be contacted separately. what if I have multiple freelancers specialists. Can they compete or be invited to the same job.
