How to apply to a project on Folyo

By Rob Williams

To apply to a project on Folyo, click on the blue link below the company name.

If this is an email link, this will open up your default mail program, create a new message with the recipient already filled out.

Once you’ve written a message, click send and your message will be instantly delivered to the client.

Alternatively, if you’re having trouble you can copy this email address and manually paste it into a new email to by-pass the mailto link.

If this link isn’t an email link, and instead it links to an outside application page, click on that and follow the steps outlined on the resulting page or RFP.
