All Things Upwork

We’ve released a new version of our Email Preferences page, giving you even more control over the communications you receive from oDesk.

We know you’re busy.  Our emails are designed to give you pertinent information and allow you to take action as efficiently as possible.  However, if you manage a large remote team or are hiring for many positions, and you already sign into your oDesk account multiple times a day, some of these emails may be redundant. You now have more options for managing the emails you receive:

  1. Go directly to the Email Preferences page within your Message Center and select the emails you no longer wish to receive.  Individual emails are listed by category, such as job applications, contracts, etc.
  2. oDesk emails contain a link in the footer to manage your email preferences.  Clicking these links takes you to your preferences where the email type you clicked will be called out.

Keep in mind, some emails are not optional, such as those alerting you that your password has changed and other security related communications.
