I had a fixed price job last month and t'was done in less than a week and even received client's payment right after. But how come it still shows job in progress in my work history? Could someone help me how to fix it? I just want to know what my clients feedback about my work and couldnt figure out since its still in progress.

Hi Shalynne,


Although you have completed the job at your end and received the payments for same, it seems your client has not yet ended the contract at their end. Clients can leave a feedback only when they ends the contract.


You may wait for the client to end the contract or request them if they want more work to be done.


Good Luck,

So what happens if the job was a year ago and that person is no longer involved with the site?

Hi Anthony,


You can reach out to the client and ask them to end the contract. If they don't reply, you can go ahead and end the contract yourself.

If the freelancer ends the contract, would  it affect the job success score?

It doesn't matter for JSS who ends the contract. However, when the client ends the contract, they are prompted to leave feedback. Having a pattern of contracts without feedback may affect your Job Success score negatively and that's why it's better to let the client end the contract.

I am so sorry for botering you but i have the same problem. I had a 2 fixed price jobs and they were done around the 5th. I received client's payment right after and also the feedback. But it still shows job in progress in my work history. 

kind regards

Hi Aleksandra,


I had a look and it seems your profile was updated in the meantime and the feedback you received is already available publicly.

You can stop more freelancers from submitting proposals for your job by changing the visibility or by closing it entirely.
