So I've gotten a few jobs on here, and they are fixed rates. When I look at my revenue history, there is a future date and how much I should be getting paid. Is this the processing time for oDesk to transfer the money to my account? This may be a silly question, but trying to learn the ins and outs of oDesk.

Welcome to oDesk! The date (under the Available on heading on your Transactions page) is basically when your funds will become available for you to withdraw.
What happens is that on a fixed price contract, once oDesk receives payment from your client, there's a 6-day security period. The funds show up as Pending and have a future date (6-days from the day when the client's payment method gets charged) showing up under "Available on".
Once the funds become "available", you then need to withdraw them to your bank account/Paypal/Skrill/Payoneer card. You need to set up your withdrawal method before hand so that it is active (adding a new payment method also comes with a security period) once your funds become available.
For hourly jobs, there's a different schedule: Weekly Pay Schedule
Hope this helps!
