Un-Decline Freelancer Proposal?

I am new to UpWork. I had selected a freelancer for work, submitted an offer then realized I needed to make changes to it. I withdrew the offer and now it shows the freelancer's proposal as declined and I cannot send an offer for work to them.


I need help solving this. I cannot find a way to "un-decline" a proposal. Does the freelancer need to submit a new proposal or do I have to submit a new job?

Hi Alton,


You can open the freelancer's profile (click on the Agency link on the right side and then on the freelancer's name on the Agency's profile page) and invite them to the same job again (choose the job from the drop-down menu) or make a direct offer.


Let me know if you were able to invite the freelancer or need further guidance.

Hi Daniel,

You can find all your archived, declined, and withdrawn proposals under the Archived tab. Please note that on any proposal, archived or not, you can use the profile link on the right side and directly go to the Freelancer's profile and use Hire Now button to send them an offer.


Thank you.
