 This was my first fear when I saw the feature had been added.


Mine too and if it happens that feature will vanish faster than you can write "spam!"

Hi Petra,

 

Our Product team considered this eventuality and in addition to declining a proposed contract, clients will also be able to use the checkbox option and block the freelancer from proposing further contracts.

If the client doesn't like the specific terms, doesn't the client have the option of making a different offer, as he would if this were a proposal submitted in response to a job posting?


 

Hi Tiffany,

 

Yes, clients do have an option to edit the contract proposal they receive, in addition to approving it, declining it, ignoring it or communicating with the freelancer before they take any of the above actions.

Great feature! I seldom participate in community discussions. This feature is really worth my kudos and my time in providing feedback. Smiley Happy

Why is it disabled in agency contracts?  Any plan to deploy it in the future for agency contracts?

Seems like a very useful feature, but I tried to use it with a client today and got the "access denied" page after clicking to propose a new contract. Any idea what the problem could be?

It would be nice if there was a function to edit the text of the proposal and add files after the submission of the proposal. And not only the cost.
