how ODesk hours are calculated

A lot of my oDesk work is in fixed price jobs, so my "ODesk hours" total is small. I wish there was a way to that my profile could reflect to clients that I have completed "x number of oDesk hours, and x number of fixed price contracts." Then it wouldn't look so odd when I apply to a job requesting 500 hours of oDesk experience.

Hi Mary, I know the feeling. My profile shows that I haven't completed a lot of hrs, but I've been here for 2 years and I've completed a lot more than 59. Unfortunately, only the hrs recorded by the tracker are displayed on our profiles. I too wish that there was a way to record the fixed priced hrs.
