Why are active proposals not archived or closed after hire?

Why are active proposals still showing listed after months, in my case 3 months. I have to open to see if there is activity or a hire. Some I can archive others I don’t have option.

Also I have a active candidacy that Upwork withdrew months ago still showing and if I click on it I get the warning. Can’t archive this one.

I wonder about this, too. Can anyone provide some insight into this?

It'll be nice to get these proposals out of the way.

Hi Mattie,


While sometimes proposals stay active because the client hasn't yet closed the job (or it hasn't expired,) I see one proposal in your Active Proposals list should have been archived as the job has been cancelled. I chatted with our tech support about it and they are aware of an issue that may be causing it. We'll have a support ticket created for you to further investigate it and keep you updated.

While  you're at it, I have a proposal showing as active that I was hired for several weeks ago.  ???

Hi Mary, 

The job post is still up, and the client is yet to close it which is why the proposal is still showing as active on your Proposals page.
