Regarding Hourly Jobs

Hello fellow freelancers!

 

I am not familiar doing hourly jobs. Recently, I landed a job with a client (hourly job)

and I had to exceed weekly limit to get some videos done. I tracked the extra time taken 

using the Upwork Time Tracker.

 

I just want to know whether the client sees the extra time I worked (which I had tracked using the App)

or do I have to add it (extra time) in manual time for the client to see?

 

Thank you in advance!

 

Cheers

Rohan

You'll have to ask the client to pay you for the extra time as a bonus. There is now no way to retroactively increase the limit for the previous week.

 

The client can see the work diary including the hours worked over the weekly limit. Was all the time tracked, or just the time over the limit?

Hello Petra - thank you for your quick reply!

All the time was tracked (30h of 20h week limit - Upwork Time Tracker)

So, I don't have to add it (extra hours worked) again in manual time?

 Hi Rohan,

 

No need to manually add hours you already logged with the Desktop app.

Hi Rohan,

 

Your client can see the time you logged over the weekly limit but won't be billed for it automatically. Please follow the advice Petra shared and ask your client to issue a bonus payment for the additional hours you logged. If you think you'll need to log additional hours on a regular basis on this contract, you can also consider communicating with your client about increasing your weekly limit.
