I've been doing some digging around the not available setting on your account and wanted some clarification.
In the past two weeks I've missed a couple of job invites because I didn't receive the email notifications (and subsequently they have counted against me), and I don't log in to Upwork every single day. If I set my account to not available, that will deter this from happening right? Does anything happen with clients that I have contracts open with?
I just saw about this 'out of office' option too, but couldn't find any more info. If I use that setting, does that block all clients from sending messages, adding milestones, sending offers? Or just some of those? I don't need it now but will be useful to know more about it for the future if I need it.
Sorry if this has been asked a million times before!
If you can please send me more information through a private message about the invites you received which you didn't receive a notification for, I would be happy to look into it further.

If you use the Out-Of-Office setting on your Messages, your clients receive a message in their Messages page that you are out-of-office if they send you a message.
