Yes, having payment on the contract in the previous 30 days is one of the criteria that needs to be met in order for the mid-contract feedback option to appear. Recent payments are a clear sign of the contract being active and work being done on it.
However, when I go to the contract room, next to the current milestone it says "active".
So the milestone is considered to be active but the contract itself is regarded as being idle at the moment? I'd call that mixed signals.
I understand what you mean, Ela, with the milestone showing as active and I appreciate your feedback. However, active milestone means that it's been funded. It doesn't always mean that any work was completed by the freelancer, reviewed by the client and paid for. Having a recently paid milestone (if the contract is fixed-price) is typically a clear signal that the client has recently received, reviewed and approved the freelancer's work and is therefore able to provide feedback about their experience.
You can't remove the feedback at this time, but we are considering adding the ability to publicly respond to mid-contract feedback.
Based on your screenshot, it looks like it's not a Mid-Job feedback. Could you please send me a private message with the contract ID so that I can check and assist you further?

I don't want to respond, the mid-feedback I got is great, but I don't like the fact that it does not show the date the contract started and it does not say "present" as the others.
