Can Freelancers Still End Contracts?

The other day, I wanted to cancel a contract. No funds had been exchanged, but I decided that I should never have accepted in the first place. I found I was unable to cancel and had to beg and plead with the client to cancel. This has never happened before. Is that new?

I'm not sure what you are talking about.

 

Unless something has changed...

Freelancers can end contracts at any time. Without needing permission from anybody.

 

Maybe a user interface element you were accustomed to using was moved to a different location?

Yeah, it was strange. I called it up under "Contracts" but couldn't cancel. Maybe I'll have Upwork check out my "elements" to ensure all is still ok. Thanks, Preston.

Did you find the end contract option under the three dots in the new "Contract Room"?

Woah - what's a contract room. Never heard of it. Please, please enlighten me. Thanks.

Tonya, I found the three dots. It asks if I want a new contract. Should I be hitting that and say no. That's still not killing the current contract, though.

Hi Virginia, 

 

I'm not sure what contract you were referring to. But the button, as shown below, should be available on each contract page. The End Contract option is available there.

Avery, I found it. It's different than it used to be. Thank you very much.

No worries, Virginia. 

You can check this announcement post by Vladimir for more information about the new contracts page.
