I was just told from a support rep that jobs will not be copied over from Elance. I think this is a big mistake. A freelance platform needs to support both the clients and the freelancer and Upwork seems to have made decision to disregard the pains caused to the paying clients. No client, no job. One of Elance's main draws was its reporting and recordkeeping ability. Seems I have to PDF everything and file it on my hard drive now, before Elance vaporizes. So much for the beauty of SAAS and the cloud.
If there is indeed a way to copy jobs, please let me know.
On the Elance forum, one of the mods, said you have to manually copy jobs and correspondence between client/freelancer. Clients are not re-matched to their freelancers. And the search function on Upwork is less than rewarding.
