Hi,

    If I open a posted project and it shows a number other than "zero" opposite to "hires" under "Activity On This Job" i.e  "Hires: 1". What does it mean ? Does it mean that someone has been hired for the project ? If yes ? Then why I still see "Submit A Proposal" button active ? If not ? Kindly guide.

    I would also like to know about connections. What are connections ? And how they are linked with your proposal?

   

    THANK YOU.

The client might want more than one freelancer, they might have forgetten to close the job, they may not know how to close the job, or they want to see if the selected freelancer can do the job before they close the job to new freelancer. There's probably more reasons, but those are most of them.

Saad you are going to have a hard time on Upwork unless you read all the help pages and Upwork's Terms of Service. (You'll find the ToS and the help pages via "Help and support"  if you scroll down to the bottom of your job feed page.)

 

In the meantime here is the page about how connects work:
