My proposals are archived!

Who can explain me why the half of my new proposals are archived? Today I posted a job to find a good freelancer for my project, but an hour later I discovered that the most of the proposals are in the archive list. What's going on? I even didn't have an opportunity to review the freelancers. Upwork promotes some freelancers and hides others?

Hi Dan,

 

I'm sorry for the trouble this caused. I checked this for you and you should be able to ''Unarchive'' proposals you would like to review. You can find ''Unarchive'' button on the right side of the Archived proposals. Let us know if you need any further assistance. Thank you.

I don't have so much time for "Unarchiving". Moreover I asked why Upwork prevented clients from chooing the best candidate for them, but I didn't get an answer. Your platform desides for the client which candidate fits and which - doesn't, sends the invitations to the interviews, bur at the end it appears that the candidate is not qualified at all. But we are people and want to choose candidates ourselves.

Dan, we followed up with the team and an agent is already communicating with you about the process. Feel free to share any of the concerns or questions you have with her. Thank you.

 No. Just NO.

 

Let's not hide this question under "you have a ticket, discuss it there, hidden from view..."

 

If a client has not archived a bunch of proposals, why are they archived? By whom? Based on what?

This is a serious matter and freelancers and clients alike deserve an answer to the question if, and why,  and how Upwork would hide proposals in an archived folder.

 

The question was not whether a client can un-archive them, the question was why proposals are hidden in the first place, and by whom and based on what, exactly.

Some people pay for connects. If nobody else they deserve to know how and why their Proposals wind up in an archived folder.

 

Let's answer that right here, shall we?

Petra,

 

That is part of the services that Talent Services offer to clients and Dan is currently in contact with one of the Talent Specialists. This is a service that clients can choose to receive or opt out of.

So, are you saying that the services of the Talent Specialist is the default setting/choice unless the client chooses not to have these services?  That is NOT right. It should be the other way around. 

 

I wonder how many freelancers proposals are archived because the client didn't click on whatever to choose NOT to have those talent services. And I wonder how many clients know proposals are archived and how to "un" archive them.

No no no! Nobody asked me whether I need this service or not. There was't any choice. Talent Specialist just started sorting my proposals without my agreement. As the result, lots of cool freelancers are in the archive list and less qualified guys are shortlisted. And I just waste time for interviewing freelancers from so to say "shortlist". Is it OK for you to waste your clients' time? Why do people from the Talent Specialist Service think that they know better what I need?

Hello everyone! I have the same trouble with the proposals! 45 proposals have been archived. And the thing is that I saw this list accidentally ( I use the mobile device and there’s this archive list hidden). I think it’s unfair. Dear Talent Specialists, leave us a chance to make the decisions by ourselves!
