Upwork Hours: At least *** hours -- This option should be removed from fixed price Jobs

Hello, 

 

I think on client side while posting fixed price project the option for " No. of Hours worked " should be removed as this option should only be provided for hourly projects. 

 

Or can be replaced with " no. of jobs completed "

I agree. That's a pretty neat observation Manish.

Thanks for your feedback, Manish. This option is available for clients if they want to get proposals from freelancers who have more experience working on Upwork. They can use that option or check total earnings that are also displayed on freelancers' profile. At this point, we don't have any plans to remove that option for clients who post fixed-price jobs.

As you mentioned " This option is available for clients if they want to get proposals from freelancers who have more experience working on Upwork " 

 

So on Fixed Price Project experience is also being measured by number of hrs worked,  

 

I have worked 0 hrs because i never worked on hourly projects.

 

I have done 17 fixed price jobs, earning over 20 K.

 

I feel this option does not match the Project type.

 

Anyways, as you said won't be removed for now, hope so it does in future. 

 

Thanks !
