How to turn on messaging and get emails when you receive a message

Hi!

I just wrote this out for someone, and thought I would share it here so any newbies can see it. Also anyone who's come back since they've changed things!

  • Click your icon or go to 'Your Houzz' at upper right.
  • Click the pencil at the top right (for 'Edit Profile').
  • Click 'Advanced Settings' on the left bar
  • Go down near the bottom where it says "Who can message me" and choose "Anyone can message me."
  • Click 'Update' at the bottom.
  • Now you can get messages!


To get emails when you get messages, on the same 'Advanced Settings Page, under 'User Activity Notifications' (about in the middle),

  • Go to 'someone messages me'
  • Choose 'every time'
  • Click 'Update' at the bottom.
  • Now when you receive a message, Houzz will will send you an email saying you have received a message.


They've definitely made this too complicated!!!!!

Hope this helps.

Best,

Shannon
