"I'm on vacation." (An account idea.)
I have an odd little idea that I want to get some opinions on. Posting here doesn't officially make it a suggestion but since we do have visits from the Guru tech gang, I thought that I'd drop it here and maybe they will find some merit in it. So here goes.
What would your opinion be about having a feature on your freelancer account, where you could indicate that you are away - whether on vacation or even just busy working long-term for another client, where you can also indicate the date you expect to be back or active again? It would be a form of "Do not disturb" on your account so that you aren't receiving invitations or having your regular clients waiting on return email or PMs from you, when you aren't around to provide them. Having a return date gives them the option of either waiting or going forward with their project publicly if it's a rush job.
What do you think - does this have any merit? Do you see any potential issues with this? Do you have any further ideas to add, that would improve the idea?
Not sure how I missed this, but yes.. its a good idea :)

I like this idea but would suggest another route. How about being able to send emails to previous weeks (or other time frame) bids like you can do in Outlook with auto respond email saying you are out of office till (date). I'd sure love to have that.
