Thank you for sharing your thoughts on Project Catalog, we value your feedback! At this point you can add up to 20 images in your project gallery and 1 video. Note that if you make your video the cover image of your project, the first 5-10 seconds of the video will automatically play when clients hover over it. Here's a great resource to help you add images or a video. I'd love to hear more about what you'd find more helpful with the project gallery, is it another file format or something else?
That said, the snippets of your profile are visible to the Client once they open the project, including the link to both your profile and portfolio. You can see this if you check out any project in Project Catalog, or watch the webinar recording.
Lastly, we're glad you've shared your thoughts about how we could improve Project Catalog further, and I'll make sure to forward your feedback to the team in charge.
Let us know if you have any questions. Thank you!

I was wondering if a feature could be added to the delivery time. It would be great if we could add "Business Days" to it. For example, I have a 3-day turnaround on a project I offer. But I do not work weekends. So if someone orders the project Friday, I will need to work over the weekend to get it to them. I really don't want to have to do that. So it would be great if I could have 3 Business Days on there, to let them know they would get it on Tuesday/Wednesday if ordered on a Friday.
This is great feedback, thank you for sharing it with us! At this point, due dates are calculated by calendar days. Still, the upside is that only after the client has purchased the project and completed the requirements, the clock starts ticking.
That said, I've already shared your feedback with the Project Catalog team! Let us know if you have any other ideas or questions.
