I said the other day I'd follow up with other things that I think need to be tweaked in this product before it would be useful to my type of work. Here they are, just based on two passes through the screens:

 

1) First and foremost, again, it must not create a contract off the bat. It needs to go to an interview or at most an offer. Without that, nothing else matters.

 

2) There needs to be additional options for deliverables under the pricing tiers, preferably freelancer-defined. The ones listed for editing and proofreading are far from sufficient. The only two levels of editing listed are "Grammar and Syntax Review" and "Structural Edit". We're missing (at least) copyediting, line editing, developmental editing. It's would be best if these were able to be defined by the freelancer for clear specification and differentiation of services.

 

3) Under book editing, we can only choose one genre. I edit regularly in five of those listed (and it's far from a complete list), so I would use 5 of my 7 available projects right here. Allow unlimited choices for genre and, preferably, the ability to add more.

 

4) There needs to be more flexibility in the pricing tiers and, preferably, the ability to calculate the cost based on the size parameter (word count in the case of editing). I price primarily by word in addition to the specific editing needs of the client. While I can (and often do) round to 500 or 1000 words, there's no way to fit that into three slots. So, we would need either a fairly flexible pricing calculator, a "starting at" option, or unlimited pricing tiers.

I so agree!  The way it's set up it pigeonholes you and there's no flexibility.  I'm willing to try it if some things are changed.  Having a couple of projects and still being able to go look through the jobs might be fine.  I can picture that some clients will try to take advantage of the projects and not in good way, however others might want to be more specific and go the message and talk route.

Hi Susan! I am a User Researcher with Upwork, and I *really* appreciate when our freelancers take the time to share their concerns! I was particularly interested in your response here because it sounds like you may be interested in Catalog if some of those concerns are addressed.  I'd love to understand a little bit more about what you (and I'm sure others) are feeling- if we could change anything about Project Catalog that would make it feel more flexible for projects like yours and safe to use with clients, what would you have us change?

Hi MD and Muhammad,

 

Please keep in mind that it can take up to 5 business days for the review to be completed. I would like to clarify that weekends are not counted as business days. Thank you.

I joined new program in project catalog and created a project. I submitted that project for review but instead of appearing in under review category, it is being shown in drafts.

What does it mean? Is my profile not submitted for review or it has been rejected for modification?

Hi Iram,

 

Please go the drafts tab and click on the three dots, once you`re there click edit and complete your project up to 6th step.

Once this is done, you will have the option to submit it for a review. 


I would also like to point out that your profile photo needs to be from yourself. Thank you.

Thanks for your question, Meshac Paul.

 

If you create a project as part of our Early Access Program, it will later be visible on your profile and showcased on a new marketplace for clients, called Project Catalog. To learn more about Project Catalog, click here.
