Could it be relevant to the number of submitted proposals?
For example, if you had more than 20 submitted proposals, you can not able to complete a new project in less than 1 week?
I have noticed this change as well. I feel that clients will be put off by this is a freelance can not turn an easy job around within a weeks time. Will UpWork please put this back? Will they notify the community?
Has anyone else had the "less than one week" option removed from "how long do you think this project will take"? Now it only says less than one month as the fastest option!
Recently the dropdown for "How long will this project take?" in the Submit a Proposal section changed. The new options are:
3 - 6 months
less than 1 month.
In the past there was an option for "less that 1 week" which was the option I chose unless the job indicated otherwise.
Over the years I've been on Upwork most of my jobs were completed in days or weeks. It seems to me that "less than a month" is vague and does not really give the prospective client a realistic idea of turnaround time.
Perhaps some consideration can be given to bringing back "less than 1 week."
Less than one week option should be added again because I have got some jobs which I can finish within 1-2 hours but I have to select less than one month which is ridiculous.
I am requesting to Up Work to add "Less than one-week" option again and also add less than a 1-day option if possible.
