Client Can Archive Proposal and You Don't Know About It.

CS says that a Client can archive your Proposal and no notice is sent to you.

 

Your Proposals show it as Active.

 

I did a Live Chat when I noted a recent proposal of my high hourly rate was not shown in the "Range".when I checked the Job Posting.

 

Above is the answer I got from Support.

Joseph,

 

That's correct, the client can accept the freelancer's proposal and invite them to the interview or decline it and a notification will be sent to the freelancer. They can also organize the proposals they receive from freelancers by shortlisting some applicants and archiving others. The client can un-archive an archived proposal but they can't reverse the action when they decline a proposal.

Thank you.
I want to get something very clear. When does a job get moved to ARCHIVE tab? Is it when the client declines or when he/she archives?

When your proposal is declined, you are out. The client can no longer see your proposal or hire you. If the client chooses to archive your proposal, they may look at the proposal in the archive and reconsidered--meaning that you still have a very slim chance of getting hired.

Thanks.
If I'm right. It means the proposals I'm seeing under ARCHIVED is a
freelancer has been declined by the client.
If a client archives my proposal, I wont be informed/notified by UpWork.
Is that correct?

I think all of proposals will be in archive sometime, not only which declined
