I'm having a small problem with a client and I'm afraid it could affect my Job Success score.
He set a contract, I accepted but he got the wrong start date. I was supposed to deliver first drafts tomorrow, but he set the start day tomorrow in stead of today. He says he can't change the start date, so he wants to end contract and start a new one. I'm wondering how this will affect my Job Success score.
From what I found out here, I told him we had two options:
1- to say contract was ended successfully and give each other 5 stars before starting the new contract.
2- to keep that date and send him first drafts on the next day.
I'm still waiting for a response, but I'm a bit nervous because he's a new client and I don't think he's too worried about his score. I'm afraid this could reflect badly on me.
What do you think??
I have ran into this before, but as I can recall my client was able to change the start date on the contract. I'm going to flag your post so that you may get a quick answer from a mod.
I believe you are referring to a contract that started today at 1:30 pm UTC. You should be able to log time on it. Please, let me know if you still can't or you are talking about a different contract.
The question remains: Can the start date be edited by the client?
I have a similar issue, the start date is tomorrow, the work is due today, but the client is saying that he doesn't see how to edit the start date... is it really not possible? or is he just not seeing how to do it?
Unfortunately it's not possible for the start date to be edited at the moment.
Your client will need to hire you on another contract or you can add manual time tomorrow, but keep in mind that manual time is not protected under our Upwork Hourly Protection. If you have any additional questions let me know, thank you.
