Messaging my employers

For your in progress projects, here are three ways you can message your employers:
via the project page
1. Go to the Payments tab of your project page.
2. Click Chat below your display name.
3. Your message thread for that project will pop up on the chat window.
via the contact list
Freelancer.com users you have previously worked with are automatically added to your contact list.
Click the name of the user you wish to chat with for your chat thread to pop up. You can also use the search field to type in a user’s name or username.

● Click on the Notifications sidebar, just above your contact list.
● From the main menu, click Messages or the icon , and click View All.
● From your Dashboard, click the Inbox tab below the main menu.
On your Inbox, click on the employer you wish to chat with to open your conversation.
