I have hired a freelancer. How do I mark job filled. Will all applicants automatically received a notification of this. Do any out standing invites also get notified.
Thanks for the help. New on site
No Lee, there will be no automated emails. You need to close the job, (don't end the contract).
To cancel or close your job:
1) Click the Jobs tab and locate the job you want to close in your Open Jobs.
2) Click Remove Posting in the Actions menu and follow the instructions. You can always come back and repost the job or hire a freelancer who submitted a proposal.
Though I am a freelancer so have least knowledge on client portal. But as far as I remember(courtesy my client sharing his screen), you need to visit the job post and once you have hired one, there will be an option which we say so...
"Are you Done with Hiring" and "You want to Hire more"
If you feel the hired freelancer is good to go with, then you can choose the option "I am done with Hiring" and later close the job post for further bidding.
I hope this helps.
