Dear Preston H,

 

Thanks for your reply.

Yes I have enable the tracker for fixed price job. But my concern is, "Is it possible to show my clients that how many hours I worked in his fixed-price project? It will help me to get paid as milestone against the hour I worked in the project.

 

Thanks,

 

Sumon

Sumon, 

the answer to your question is: Yes.

 

If you enable time-tracking, clients will be able to see how many hours you log while working on your fixed-price contract.

I can't speak from personal experience, but from what I've read in this forum I don't think this is correct. I don't think the client would be able to see Sumon's hours worked.

 

But I agree with you that this is a bad idea either way.

If the client goes into the work diary he can add them up manually.

I agree it is a bad idea either way.

No. it won't help at all.

It's a "privilege" to use fixed price contracts? It's not like the freelancer has any control over it;


Of course the freelancer has control over it. The freelancer decides what to accept and what not to accept.

Personally, with most jobs I really don't care, I go with whatever the client prefers as long as I'll end up earning the same. SOME contracts I will only accept on an hourly basis and some only as fixed rate ones, and I just make that clear during the pre-offer discussions.

 

This isn't modern slavery. Freelancers can accept or not accept whatever they like and negotiate their terms / sell their arguments why one form of contracts will suit the project better than the other.
