Hi Md. Raju,

 

Project Catalog is where you let clients come to you. When you create a project, it displays as a listing that clients can open to learn more. Clients find you by searching for the skills and services you offer.

 

When you create a project we will first review it before making it visible to clients. Our review includes making sure your project is complete, looks professional, and doesnโ€™t violate our Terms of Service. Please allow up to five business days for your project to be reviewed.

 

Thank you,

 

 

NOTICE:

We are currently receiving more projects for review than usual. Please allow us longer than usual to review your project.

Hello,

2 of my projects have been under review, and pending approval for almost 3 weeks now. It's supposed to take up to 5 days, what seems to be the issue?

Hi Mohamed,

 

We sincerely apologize for the delay as our team is currently receiving an unusually higher volume of requests. I've submitted a follow-up directly to the team handling your review. Please allow them some time to further review your submission and you should be getting an update on your project momentarily.

 

Should we need more information about your submission, our team will send you an email with details on how you can edit the project for approval. Feel free to check out this page to learn more about Project Catalog.

I have recently created an account and uploaded 4 catalogs over there but none of them are approved now.

it's been more than one week I want to know how much time it will take to review my catalog.

Hi Karishma,

 

While the review process usually takes up to 5 business days, there can be instances where it might take longer due to various factors such as high volume of submissions or potential issues with the content. Ensure that your catalogs meet Upwork's guidelines and requirements. Make sure there are no errors, offensive content, or copyrighted material.

 

If you haven't heard back after 5 business days, consider contacting Upwork Support via the Help Center. Provide the necessary details and politely ask for an update on the status of your catalogs. While it's understandable that you're eager to get your catalogs approved, please remember that the Upwork team is working to ensure that all submissions meet their quality standards. They will get back to you as soon as they can.

Dear Team,

 

I am new to upwork and trying to secure work on the platform as a freelancer. 

I had created Projects and Consultations, one of which got approved and rest have been pending for long. 

 

Some of the Project are pending since March 8th and a consultation is pending since March 6th. 

 

I had heard that generally its 4-5 business days for projects and consultations to get approved. Who should I reach out to as I have not heard anything on the projects and consultations?

 

Regards

KG

If it's discussing content, max two hours, but never ever start working without a contract, not even for 10min. If they're interested they can write a small contract for a token 100$, but the rule: never ever do something for free

It has been more than 21 Days and my project on upwork is still not review. Can anyone tell me how much time does it take for the team of upwork to approve a project?

Hi Sirous,

 

I can see that your project is still in draft. To submit your project for review, you'll need to click on the edit option, and from the review page, click on "Submit for Review". Note that it can take up to five business days for your project to be reviewed.

Hey there,
Hope you all are doing well. I am new on Upwork (Create and verified my account long ago) So I need to know information about the project catalog. Is there any possibility to get an offer/order/job from the "Project catalog" without bidding on any job post? If it is possible, can you please share some tips?

Helloโ€š

 

Why does one project catalog come out on the front page compared to others? Is it due to more order or keyword?

 

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Nahid,
 
Various factors go into search results, and results may differ over time, partly to allow more freelancers and their projects a chance to be discovered. Some considerations may include Freelancer skills, experience, platform ratings, and other elements geared toward determining a potential match for the clientโ€™s requirements.
 
Our search is based on several factors that continue to evolve. We cannot disclose exactly what makes up the rules for a search order, and those rules are likely to change, so any specific advice we could give you would be short-lived. Search is no longer mainly static, meaning it always stays the same. Depending on marketplace activity across jobs and contractors, a contractor's search position will likely ebb and flow.

Thank you. 

My project catalog has been pending, awaiting review and approval for more than 2 Weeks.

 

What could be the cause?

Hey there, I'm currently waiting for one of my projects to be reviewed. I submitted it on the 13th, and it's now the 28th. I made one single edit to it before it was approved, but that was only to capitalize the letters in the title, and that was on the 21st. I was wondering what I'm doing wrong.

 

Cheers!

Thanks for the response Annie. Might be worth updating the text regarding turnaround times however, as this seems to be a long term delay.

Hello,

 

I created a new project catalog and consultation option over a week and a half ago and it still says pending review. I was wondering on average how long does this review take and if I will be immediately notified once the review period is over?

 

Thanks,
