Starting today, you have a lot more control over which clients can send you orders. Whether you're managing your capacity or making sure you establish a relationship with your clients before you receive the first order, there's something in today's update for everyone.
Limit to fee panel clients only
Now you have the ability to accept orders only from clients whose fee panel you are a member. This can help ensure you have a relationship with clients who are sending you orders. You can set it with a simple checkbox found on the Details tab in your profile.
Remove yourself from a fee panel
You're now able to remove yourself from any fee panel of which you're already a member. We've had several requests for this feature - and while we hope you don't need to use it often - if you do, it's a simple matter of a couple of clicks in the My Panels tab in your profile. When you remove yourself from a fee panel, you'll need to provide a reason which will be sent to your client when notified of your removal. You’ll also need to make sure you’ve completed or declined any open or pending orders.
Put yourself "on-hold" for a fee panel
If you're trying to develop a relationship with a new client, or if you are concentrating on a specific project, it would be helpful to limit your orders from other clients. So, now you can set yourself unavailable for any client's fee panel during a specified timeframe. In the My Panels tab, just click the Set dates link in the Unavailable column to specify the dates during which you won't accept orders from that client.
These new features are based directly on your feedback, and as always, we want more! Keep it coming to info@MercuryVMP.com, and watch here for more upcoming improvements.
