Need help if potential client is abiding to rules and policy or not.

Hi, I got a potential client for a job request for a long term contract I received it via job invite.

I just need to answer the questionnaire form via an external link.


I did not answer it yet. Because as far as I know it is against upwork's policy for outside communication until a contract is signed.


The questions are fine since it is related and relevant to the job post request.


Usually, other clients that I have applied for have their questionnaires below the job request ... before submitting your proposal.. In my case, I got an invite. I checked the client is Upwork plus client. and and is verified and has a good track record. 


I just want to be safe but I don't want to let this opportunity slide.



Can a moderator give me an advice? Because I don't want to let this opportunity pass.

Just to add the external link is just a questionnaire to test my skills. Can someone please give me an advise.

Hi Ian,
