Sorry, Wendy. In my reply I was trying to address your concern here:
Wendy C. wrote:
So what is the process FLer should take to insert current rates without angering clients who are getting incorrect info?
..by explaining that there is no need for freelancers to additionally insert their current rate. The client always sees the freelancer's current profile rate. They are not getting incorrect information on freelancer's rate. If the client offers a rate that's different from the rate the freelancer would like to be paid for the job, the freelancer can decline the offer and/or discuss it with the client. The freelancer also needs to make sure they keep their own profile rate updated.
*Edited for clarity.
Thank you Valeria for your response. Although I had no idea about the fixed price proposal bug issue. Thanks for the link to that thread, otherwise I may have never known. I actually had a proposal revert to the client's budget and didn't know until I rechecked it just now.
