I need to have the ablity to hide or delete closed jobs.  If this isn't possible, I will no longer be able to work with this service.

Hi Robert, 

There is no way to edit your job post from public to private once the job has already been closed. However, setting closed jobs from public to private can be requested and will be actioned on as needed.

Hi Avery,

Can you let me know how to request the setting closed jobs from public to private?

At the moment the job is not showed on client side, just showed on my side.

Hi Leang,

If you would like to set your earnings to private you will need to upgrade to our Plus plan. Jobs can`t be set to private or removed from a freelancer profile. If you have additional questions please send me a PM with your Contract ID so that I can advice you accordingly. Thank you.

How do I request past completed jobs I posted be changed to private?

Hi Michael,


You can switch your completed jobs to private by clicking on "Make Private" from the options menu. Here's the help article for more information. Thank you.

It is not possible. Hiding or removing past jobs would essentially give freelancers the ability to remove bad feedback, and that defeats the purpose of having feedback.


EDIT: I stand corrected. I didn't think it was possible.

Craig A, can you tell me how to hide a project. I assume that you're recant at the end means there's a way.
