As part of the Basic plan you have access to several reports:

-Freelancer work diaries. Visit the Contract Room for any project to see a freelancer’s Work Diary.
-Weekly Summary email. Account admins will get this weekly email report, which includes details such as the hours logged by your freelancer(s).
Based on data about how clients use reports, we expect that the tools above will give the majority of clients the information they need to manage their projects. However, in cases where clients need more information, we are offering the paid Client Plus plan.
use to be so easy looking at a weeky report. seeing what was going on and now you got to spend time trying to look at individuals. just because you want more money for reporting

Gouging clients $50 a month for what was previously a free basic report is the definition of pence wise pound foolish.
And limiting job invites to 3 per job? Who do you think loses money if the job goes unfilled? - not the client for sure!
Your making what used to be a relatively straightforward experience into a boondoggle just on the off chance that a client will fork over $50 a month for attempting to get jobs filled by qualified candiditates, and seeing our billing activities in one place.
