oDesk has automatically hidden some applicants who may not be a good fit for your job

Still annoyed about this 'auto hide' feature. I sent a complaint to customer support and they reckon that none of my applications were hidden within the last 6 months because I choose jobs carefully. I doubt that none of them were hidden. I decided to complain because I noticed for a good while that I wasn't receiving replies to my applications and everything went dead. No doubt some clients don't reply for other reasons, but I've been here a while and notice a pattern. It's hard enough to compete with other freelancers as it is. oDesk, clients are perfectly capable of choosing applicants themselves, things were fine as they were. Many clients have said that the algorithm isn't working as sometimes some of the best candidates are hidden. I'm yet to see anyone on these forums who thinks that this is a good move.

I have a very good candidate in the hidden tab, but I can't unhide him, I click unhide but nothing happens, he's stuck in the hidden tab.

As a client, this is getting frustrating. I recently posted a job and had 0 responses for several days when I viewed the project in my overview page. It wasn't until I went into the actual job that I saw no less than 16 applicants had been hidden! That's 16 out of 16, some of whom were actually well suited for the role and who I went on to interview. oDesk, please make this feature optional because it is making it much harder for clients to sort through qualified applicants and is adding an unnecessary step to the hiring process.

Clients see your profile. This is why they don't hire you.

Jerameel,

 

All proposals are delivered to the client and are not auto-hidden anymore. The client can access all of them by clicking "Show More."

 

We have closed this thread for further replies because information on it is outdated.
