Feature Request - Transfer hours logged in one contract to another

In the past, I had many cases,   when I logged time in the wrong contract. 

I know,  I can contact the client about this, but I usually prefer not to bother them and I am just deleting hours logged in the wrong contract. 

Converting it to money,  I can tell that lost money will be more than 1000 $. just for my case, I believe there will be many freelancers like me,  and the sum of lost money can easily excess millions per year. 

On the other hand, implementing hours transferring feature is pretty easy to do technically, I am sure it won't cost millions as well.  

So, select hours => click transfer button => choose contract in dropdown => submit and that's it.  A simple feature saves millions of dollars  (Taking Upwork size into account )

It is not the same as manually entering time, because actuall logger is used and screenshots are genuine as well, so it does make sense to have that feature available

Hi Goran and everyone!


**a feature which allows contractors to transfer logged time from their work diary into a different contract** 


Can this requested feature be PRIORITIZED? Some contractors are asking about this since year 2017!


Contractors pay thousands of dollars to Upwork over these years. Upwork in return has also got to do something to improve their services for everyone, most especially for the contractors, AND not just to always find a way to charge us.


20% fees. 10% fees. 5% fees. Connects $$$$ money, money money-making.


What about us freelance contractors?
