Re: Will tracked time on fixed contracts reflect on my profile?

Hello, 

 

I need to know whether tracking time on fixed price contracts will reflect on my profile. 

 

I have noticed that a number of clients use Upwork hours as a requirement for hiring freelancers. 

 

I have done a number of fixed contracts and without tracking that means the hours worked on such projects is lost. 

 

I need to know if the tracked hours in fixed contracts enrichs my profile in terms of Upwork hours.

No, only hours tracked on hourly contracts count.

The "minimum hours" thing is a preference, not a requirement.

Exactly. It is  preference, which a client will look at regardless of your qualifications. Thanks for the clarification.

Only hourly contracts can be tracked as Petra said.

Only 2 out of 100 clients look for so many hours my opinion.

In my area of speciality, nearly 4 out of 10 jobs posted has that as a requirement. Some clients even set it at ridiclous levels like 200+ hours. Thanks for clarifying though.
