If you are referring to getting the exact number of proposals received, it will give you an estimate. Please let us know if you have further clarifications. Thanks!
Actually, it would really help to know a more specific number. 20-50 is a big range. I'd be more likely to bid on a project if I knew that there were 21 proposals already, as opposed to 49.
yes, I agree that it would be nice to see the exact number.
But I don't think this is going to change.
Still... many things HAVE changed over the years as a result of user requests. Upwork even started giving free connects again, and stopped penalizing JSS for contracts closed without client feedback.
So there IS the theoretical possibility of changing how the number of job applicants is displayed.

To me, that's in the same category as the twaddle about not splitting infinitives in English. But I'm sure a puppy dies every time someone takes 'actions'. 'Action' is an uncountable noun, and this really is the sort of English up with which I will not put.
