Is it posible to send files to job applicants?
I´m quite new in Upwork and I have just posted my first jobs. For one of them I have a number of applicants and I want to send to a few of them a file with details of the job for them to give me a fix price.
Is it posible to do this?
I´m typing them a message but I cant seem to be able to attach a file.
In the space provided to type messages, you will notice, on the right, what looks like a 'clip'. If you click on it, you are given the option of attaching a file.
Hope that helps.
I see you already sent a few attachments to a couple of freelancers, let me know if you have additional questions.
Irene, thanks for sharing instructions about attaching files to messages and helping Enrique out.
I see you were able to send a file to the freelancer you invited to your job post. The freelancer you copied in your post wasn't invited and you need to initiate contact with them in order to start communicating, and be able to exchange files.
I have the same problem. I asked for bids. i got responses. i want to send them a file to review and quote, but can't see how to attach it. i see a place for attachmetns here, but not when replying to a candidate.
Once you accept a proposal and message an applicant, a message room will be created and you should be able to communicate with the freelancer further and attach a file from that message room.
?? the document needs to be transmitted first - before
the proposal is accepted - so the freelancer has
an unambiguous understanding of what is required.
what are the steps to attaching a doc o a response?
Once you've received a proposal from a freelancer or sent an invite to a freelancer, you can use the Upwork messages to attach documents for them to view and receive. To do that, please open the message you have with the specific freelancer and click on the paperclip icon on the message box to attach any documents needed for the project.
Hi Ryan, in regards to your comments below, is it correct to say that no one else but the specific freelancer I'm in the message box with can view the attached file? Thanks
