most likely someone gave you a low private score. 

 

You have 97%. It's 7% more than you should worry about. It's pretty hard to mantain the 100% mark.

I have had my UpWork account open since 2015 but only within the last two or three weeks have I actively searched for and have been awarded projects on UpWork.

 

I have now  successfully completed my first six projects on UpWork with five star reviews from the clients.

 

For a variety of reasons I am wanting to terminate my seventh project without submitting any work.

 

I am wondering what effect this would have on my JSS and the negative effect it would have on finding good gigs on UpWork in the future?

 

Thanks so much.

The answer is pretty much the same as it was a few days ago when you wondered about the same thing with the fourth contract.

 

It will most likely have a significant impact because you had so few contracts, and likely lead to your JSS (which you will likely get on Sunday) being impacted. This will have an impact on your ability to find good gigs until you can get your JSS back up.


You need to not get into such situations in the first place, by organising your work and checking clients and files carefully before accepting a contract.

Hi,

 

This week, I have done 3 projects and got 5 stars' feedbacks. But still, my job success rate is 85%. Why it is not increasing. I want to solve this problem. If anyone knows about this then please help me. 

 

Thank you,

Vicky

Because the JSS updates every second Sunday afternoon / evening only.
The next update is this coming Sunday.

Hi Everyone,

So, one of my contract is idle from more than 2 months, but before this he paid me every month. And there is no new active milestones and tasks for me but the extra money in escrow.

I already requested him via messages to end this contract but he is a client who appears when he has any new task, I complete the task, he receives work, reviews and than disappears, after 12 or 13 days he pays money or a couple of times upwork paid me money after 14 days.

My concern is if I end this contract

  1.The refund will effect my jss or not?

  2. If I end this contract and if not having feedback on this contract will affect my jss on on next update or Upwork waits for 14 days to add this contract in JSS count because If he will appear in next 14 days, he may leave feedback which will be good as he is very happy with the work and will wish to rehire for any future tasks.

What should I do, wait for a month or so, Or Should  end this contract?

Thanks.

You need not worry about this contract, it won't hurt your JSS either idle or closed without feedback, because money has been paid under it.

I'd just leave it open.

Hi Petra,

Thanks for your help & reply. 

I will leave it open for sometime but not more than 3/4 months, because may be after that it will hurt my JSS.

Thanks.
