If you can give us the ability to propose milestones to clients that would be great, many time I was asked by clients to do so

Hi Rami, 

In Lena's announcement post, she shared that freelancers can now set up the contract as hourly or fixed price with proposed milestones. Clients can then simply accept, decline or edit the proposal which will then send an offer back to the freelancer.

As I had commented at the very beginning of this thread, I still think it would be great to be able to propose a contract to new and prospective clients.  I am still finding that new clients are sometimes finding it difficult to set up and send a proposal.  Allowing the freelancer to set up the proposal would improve the client user experience. I understand that a client should not be bombarded with proposals so perhaps this feature could be activated at some juncture of the interview process.

Can we just change the existing contract instead of proposing another one? This feature will create another contract from the one already existing right?

does proposing a new contract keep the pay history for the client, on which % Upwork commission is based? Or does it start from $0 at the full 20%?

Yes, it keeps the pay history.
