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 projectโ€™s URL in your profileโ€™s description and on your social media accounts for even more visibility. Your projectโ€™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 youโ€™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:

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

I uploaded my project when I made my account on Upwork. After a few days, I checked it and it was from Under Review to Drafts. I don't know what draft means. So I made some changes to it and it's now in the draft again. will it be approved after some time, or does the draft mean something else?

Please help me out ๐Ÿ™‚

When your project is in "Draft" status on Upwork, it means that it is not yet submitted for approval and is not visible to clients. You can make changes to your draft project as many times as you want before submitting it for approval.

Once you are satisfied with your project, you can submit it for approval by clicking the "Submit for Approval" button. Upwork will then review your project and either approve it or reject it. If it is approved, it will be listed on the Upwork platform and be visible to clients who are searching for freelancers with your skills.

If your project is rejected, Upwork will provide you with a reason for the rejection and you can make the necessary changes and resubmit it for approval.

In your case, if your project is currently in "Draft" status, you can continue to make changes to it until you are ready to submit it for approval. Once you have submitted it for approval, you will need to wait for Upwork to review it and either approve or reject it.

I hope this helps! If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

 

Ok, Thanks for your reply. Now I understand what it means. Actually, I was waiting for it to be approved for many days but then my account got suspended. I contacted Upwork for a whole week then got my account back. That's why it was on draft. 

Thanks Zain ๐Ÿ™‚

Please Approve my catalogue project which pending 3 weeks ago.

No One helps here. Please contact with Upwork Support Centre with all details. I hope It will be okay

Upwork's service is extremely poor. My project has been under review for a month now, and there is no way to track its progress in the review queue. Additionally, the proposal section does not indicate whether the client has viewed my proposal or not. Upwork claims to have excellent service, but they primarily care about making money by charging service and connection fees. Essentially, Upwork prioritizes profits over the well-being of freelancers.

 

I understand that this platform is not suitable for freelancers who offer genuine and high-quality services. It is more like a bidding system at a fish market, where people compete for money. In my opinion, this platform is not suitable for new freelancers. It is only for wealthy people who want to become even richer.

 

 

Hi Harsh,

 

I am sorry to learn about your experience and how you feel about Upwork. I checked your Upwork account and the 'under review' project. I noticed that the project was last submitted on March 15th, 2023. Usually, it takes about 5 days for our team to review and update your project. We are currently receiving more projects for review than the regular volume. Please allow us longer than usual to review your project. Our team will review your project and update you as soon as possible. Please avoid resubmitting your project to avoid further delay as it may reset your review time.

 

Thank you,

Pradeep

Upwork's Project Catalog is a relatively new feature on the platform that allows clients to browse pre-defined project scopes and prices, and directly hire a freelancer without posting a job. Here are two critical differences between Upwork's Project Catalog:

  1. Project Scope and Pricing: One of the key differences between Upwork's Project Catalog and traditional job posting is that the catalog lists pre-defined project scopes and pricing. 

  2. Direct Hiring: Another critical difference between Upwork's Project Catalog and traditional job posting is that the client can directly hire a freelancer from the catalog without posting a job. 

Overall, the Project Catalog is a valuable addition to Upwork's platform, as it provides an alternative to the traditional job posting process, making it easier for clients to find and hire freelancers and for freelancers to find work.

Must Appreciate!

Hello Luiggi, 5 days ago my projects were approved but I didn't get any client why? Upwork team plz check my profile.

Hi Danish,

 

Please know that we are not privy as to why clients do not order your project or how they choose their projects at all. Please consider that there are other projects on the marketplace, clients may have different preferences, and the demand for your projects may be lower compared to other projects. We still encourage you to apply for jobs to get more chances of getting a client.

Hello everyone,

I recently posted a project on Upwork, but it hasn't been verified by the support team yet. It has been 6 days since I submitted it, and I'm starting to get concerned. I would like to know how to contact the support team to get some help with this issue. Does anyone have any experience with this or know how to reach out to them?

Thank you in advance for your help!
