Hi there, I decided to end my Upwork connection right now, right here. I found how to reach the delete account section however this is the message what I receive. I have applied for 2 jobs only however that was on the 26 Sept and never heard back from them but the proposals are still there. How can I delete proposals?

Open the proposal in question and hit "Withdraw proposal" / "Withdraw this proposal" (right side, under the green button).
