Project Catalog

Hi Upwork team, 

I submitted the project on 6 march and second on 26 March but they are still in pending for approval. Please check their status and guide me. I'll be thankful for your kind cooperations.

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Hi Ak,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Allow me to explain how  Project Catalog works. Firstly, we review all project listings, including consultations, before publishing them on Project Catalog to help ensure a quality platform that helps you attract quality clients, and we promote Project Catalog on client pages.

 

Once your project listing is published, the project will display on your Upwork profile. You can also share the project’s URL in your profile’s description and on your social media accounts for even more visibility. Your project’s overview consists of its title, category, project attributes, and search tags. The information you include here is your first impression to prospective clients, so you’ll want it to shine. Feel free to check this help article for more details. Please allow up to five business days for your project to be reviewed.

 

 

NOTICE:

 

Project Catalog submissions by Top Rated, Top Rated Plus, and Expert Vetted Talent are typically reviewed within 2 business days. If you do not have one of these badges, please note that our current review process is experiencing an extensive delay due to internal efforts to enhance our efficiency and accuracy.

and anything related to bossted catalog?

I almost turned on bossting for 10 days but i didn't recive a single click

Hi Maham,

 

I'm sorry to hear you haven't recieved clicks on your project. When you enable this feature, you'll essentially use Connects to boost your project to the first page of the results when clients perform a search for projects like yours based on the keywords you selected. Your project will be boosted until it receives the clicks you paid for with Connects. We can't determine why a client may not click on your project while it's boosted.

 

You can stop your boost anytime and get a refund of Connects based on clicks. If you stop boosting your project before receiving the clicks you paid for, we will refund you the difference after 24 hours. Feel free to check this article for more information.

Hello,

I submitted my project catalog for review on 1 May.  I haven't received any confirmation and the project catalog is still under review process. I would like to know how long will it take to get it approved.

 

Thank you

Normally to approve a project takes five business days but I suggest that you wait because it maybe due to different people also submitted some their own project so i suggest you wait for  s few days because this sort of thing happens

Dear Upwork Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to kindly request the review of three projects that I have uploaded to my project catalog on the platform since April 27th of this year. To date, these projects have not been approved or reviewed, and I would appreciate feedback on them as soon as possible.

The projects I have uploaded are related to . I believe these projects may be of interest to the Upwork community, and I am eager to start working on them with potential clients.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could allocate time to review these projects and provide any feedback or suggestions you deem relevant. I am committed to meeting the platform's quality standards and continuously improving my profile and services.

I look forward to your prompt response and appreciate your attention to this request.

Sincerely,
Jenny

Thanks for your question. When you create a project, we will first review it before making it visible to clients. Our review includes ensuring your project is complete, looks professional, and doesn’t violate our Terms of Service. To learn more about Project Catalog, click here.

 

Typically, reviews take up to five business days, but we are experiencing delays in reviewing Consultations and Catalog projects. You’ll be notified by email when the review is complete.

Good evening!

I have published a project and I am based in Ukraine. My project has been approved. But there is no donate button added to my project. My client wants to make a donation for me, however, they cannot because of this problem. Please help me to add my project to the Ukrainian Catalogue of Charitable Projects.

I was having same issue, even after editing an approved project they didn't approved it which shows is the issue with the upwork system and not with the sellers, I don't have a solution and I hope someone that does help out🤗

Due to the high number of requests, it is taking Upwork a minimum of 10 business days to review and approve project catalogs. Ten business days is the minimum; I have seen project catalogs not get approved for up to 20 days.

 

By the way, if you edit an approved project, it may take just as long for the edited project to be reviewed and approved.

 

In other words, Upwork is overwhelmed with project catalog requests, so it is taking a while.
