Hi Raju Gurung,

 

When your proposal is declined by the client, withdrawn by you or the job is closed, it'll be moved to Find Work> Proposals> Archived. 

Clients also have an option to archive proposals on their end.

Unbelievable. Just when I thought Upwork couldn't be any more disappointing.

Now this...is low. And so btw....the competency of these so-called 'talent specialists' or whatever they are called...has been brought into question MANY times. You know...why doesn't Upwork do itself a favor and just get rid of them? I seriously doubt they are needed (qualified).

Didn't Upwork once tell users - both buyers and freelancers - that TRANSPARENCY mattered?

 

This certainly proves otherwise.

Are you a upwork Pro Customer by any chance. They say they will screen applicants for upwork pro customers . If you have not signed for such services, they are unauthorized and unjustified in messing with the proposals. Otherwise, the talent specialists may be doing shoddy work but have been authorized by you to do the screening.

 I'm sure they would know if they had paid $ 500 plus 10% of the job value ...

Re Upwork 'Pro' ...I wish I knew you weren't kidding. What the heck are people paying for - lack of knowledge?

 

ARGH ...

 Wendy,

I have no experience with Talent specialists. I am not saying it is cool for people to be paying for uncompetent people. But that is not the same thing as unauthorized.

I have just raised a query and I may be wrong.

Petra,

What could be the reason for Upwork to mess with whole hiring process when they have not been asked to do that? What will that achieve other than frustrating both clients and freelancers to consider other platforms?

Upwork trying to sell their talent specialist services is one thing but inserting itself in process without any authority or invitation is very disturbing. 

If they are inserting themselves  in the process we do not know if the invitations would be actually sent or if the applications are actually sent to client or just randomly tossed away. 

I am unable to understand what could be the motivation for upwork in  making the process so unreliable? May be I am missing something.

I just raised a query that OP may have signed up for any of such services offered by upwork, somehow missing  some small details. People sometime overlook some small details .I may definitely be wrong  .That was just a query.

Vivek, if the archiving happened because of some small detail the client overlooked, I would think by now a moderator would have replied in this thread with an explanation. So until there’s an official explanation, I’m accepting the client’s claim that Upwork did this without his consent.
