Where can I click to change a job from hourly to fixed rate so the client doesn’t have to create a new job and invite me and go through all that hassel?
Where is the option of migrating test scores and group affiliations achieved from Elance to Upwork?
Where is the option of migrating portfolio samples from Elance to Upwork (without having to download them from Elance and then upload them to Upwork)?
Some clarifications to Pandora's comprehensive answers:
- As Pandora correctly described, you come to agreement with prospects during the interview; they can change jobs from hourly to fixed rate when they make an Offer, to use Upwork's official language. (In general, when Pandora says "hire," this is what Upwork calls making an Offer, which you can accept or decline.)
- Confirming: "no go" on test scores and groups.
- If you "bridged" your Elance account, your portfolio should have been migrated automatically, and you can follow up with customer support. If you "merged" Elance and Upwork/oDesk accounts, portfolio items are not imported.
p.s. Don't mind the psychics.
@Upwork: Dare we hope that the actual procedure for converting hourly jobs to fixed-price might some day make it into the official documentation?
