@OCP_Clean It looks like your advanced settings were on, I went ahead and turned them off for you so that you only receive requests in your travel area. You'll be able to see this by going to your services and scrolling down to the very bottom. If you're still seeing requests from different states come in within the next 48 hours, please send me a private message. Have a great weekend!

Hi @Visualconcepts I'm happy to look in to this for you. Have you checked your advanced settings

If you want to direct message me the email address you use for your Thumbtack account I can check it out, too.

Let's make sure you get set up for success!

Getting the same problem here... receiving tons of request from outside the area specified (including other states). It shows/tags as "Partial Match". How can I filter only the requests that I specified on "Travel Preferences" page?

How do I change my location settings to find clients when I’m in a different state? (I’m from MN and currently in OR for a week and want to see if I can find potential work)

@Gstilly go to your account settings and change your zip code to the zip code you'll be in, in OR. From there, go to your job preferences and look over your travel settings to make sure you're traveling the radius you want. Let me know if you have any questions.
