Q: I send my client messages and listings, but when they click on the link to access the webpage, they get an "account deactivated" message. What happened?

A: When adding or later editing a client's status, you have a choice of five: Active, Active-hot, Under Contract, Closed or Inactive. Your client list can then be sorted down to one or more of those statuses. The Inactive status blocks the client access to the webpage.
