Hi Ayman, 

 

You should be able to change the duration of the project by choosing one of of options under the "How long do you think this project will take?" drop-down menu. Let us know if you're unable to do that so that we can assist you further.

Hi Bojan,

 

I have been looking for that dropdown and can't find it. According to the Review project view, it should be in the "Budget" section of the job posting creation, but it simply isn't.

Hi Nicholas,

 

Could you please click on the job, and then scroll down to the budget section and click on the pencil icon as shown in this screenshot? Please let us know if you still experience issues updating the duration.

I was having this same issue. If you change your project from a "Pay a fixed price" to "Pay an hourly price", you will see the option to change the project duration. After you select your desired duration, change it back to "Pay a fixed price". Click that update button and you are good to go!

I find it odd that you can only change the project duration when you select the hourly price.
