*Thought some may find this helpful*

I queried on Jan. 18th and received the following response about only being open to queries from the 1st to 15th of each month. See below response from her:

"I am open for submission from the first to the 15th of each month only. This is a volume controlling measure we have just put in place and the goal is to try to reply before the first or the next month. We are trying this method out.

Queried Brenna English-Loeb on June 7, 2019.
Full request: August 28, 2019.
Sept. 12, 2019: Message from Brenna indicating that the MS had been shared and loved by both agents.
Offer of representation by both agents: September 16, 2019
Offer accepted September 23, 2019!

(Patrick, just so you won't let me note the correct date on the offer. It will only allow me to record it for today.)
Update...I see what I did...I recorded the date wrong earlier in the process. I fixed it! Thank you!

Cappycat, the system won't let you select a date in the future, and it won't let you select a date that comes before the last step you recorded. But if you're trying to change it and it is close to midnight, there may be some timezone discrepancy that keeps you from selecting the current day.
