Hi all,

Hope I'm posting about this in the right place. I haven't been receiving job notifications at all. I checked my dashboard settings, and everything seems to be set up properly. I get all the Kudos posts that I should, so am curious what I might be doing wrong. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Chris

Notifications are turned off for your language pair Jan 19, 2017

Hello Chris,

Thank you for your support of the site!

I see you currently have notifications for Japanese to English job turned off on your dashboard. If you go to the notifications dashboard, at http://www.proz.com/dashboard.php/jobs?sp=dashboard , and select the option "Immediate alerts" for Japanese to English and then save the changes, you should start receiving job notifications.

Hope this explains! Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything else.

Best regards,
Alejandro

In my case, I had "immediate alerts" on for years, yet, I never receive email notifications for a vast majority of jobs for these language pairs. Is there an explanation for this? It's been going on for years.

I only get a job email notification once in a blue moon (I'd say for about 5% of all jobs).

Thanks.

You should start receiving notifications now Jan 20, 2017

Hello Lingua 5B,

Thank you for mentioning your problem. I have now updated your settings, so you should start receiving notifications now.

The problem was that you had not declared "Translation" as a service under each of your language pairs, at the moment of declaring them. As most job postings request translation services, you were not being sent notifications for them.

This can be edited from https://www.proz.com/settings/languages#pairs , by clicking the pencil icon next to each language pair. That will let you edit the services for each language pair.

I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any question or need anything else.

Best regards,
Alejandro

Thank you for fixing this, I supposed it might have had something to do with the settings.

I used to receive job postings, but not anymore Nov 14, 2017

Hello,

In my case, I used to receive job alerts for my language combinations, but even if I didn't change anything in the job alert settings, I stopped receiving them about two weeks ago.

Today I checked the settings, and they were exactly as I left them. What could be the problem?

Thank you.

Cristina

Hi Cristina,

It looks like the email address you have in your profile has been marked as disabled-- this happens after ProZ.com attempts several times to send notifications to your email address unsuccessfully. I have re-enabled it, but if the issue continues you may need to check with your email provider to find out what is preventing delivery from ProZ.com (and potentially other senders).
