Wanna get notified when receiving a new reply from a lead on Upwork? πŸ“©

Use Lead Reply Notification! πŸ›ŽοΈ

How to Enable?

Settings > Preferences > Lead Reply Notifications βœ”οΈ

Lead Reply Notification Contains:

  • πŸ“Œ Link to job posting

  • πŸ•΅οΈβ€β™‚οΈ Link to Scanner

  • 🌍 Link to the Room

  • πŸ“ Link to the Proposal

  • πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Link to Freelancer, on behalf of whom the proposal was submitted and received a reply

  • πŸ“Š Link to Business Manager who submitted the proposal (GigRadar or manual bidding)

If I'm part of the agency and I see this notification, can I join the room on Upwork with this lead?

  • Yes, if you have permissions to see your agency's conversations on Upwork

Is the Lead Reply Notification Instant?

  • No. Lead Reply Notifications are sent together with the periodic dashboard sync, which typically happens every 1-2 hours depending on your GigRadar configuration.

We are working on implementing instant notifications, both for lead replies and new invitations. πŸ”„

Can I get Lead Reply Notifications only from proposals that were sent by GigRadar, or from manual bidding as well?

  • Yes, you can get all notifications that have been submitted within your agency, like from all exclusive members. 🀝

If a proposal has been submitted on behalf of a non-exclusive freelancer but within the agency, you will get a notification. πŸ“¬

You won't receive a notification if a non-exclusive freelancer submits a proposal as an independent freelancer because this reply won't appear in your agency

GigRadar is only able to see what is going on in your agency, not beyond its borders. 🚫
