Hi all.

I need to know when a project is closed while it remains in my proposals.

When go to my proposals and click "job details" I see these lines:


 Activity on this job
Proposals: 5 to 10
Last viewed by client: 19 hours ago
Invites sent: 0
Unanswered invites: 0
Hired: 1


Hired : 1 means that the work was just assigned to other user ??


Thanks for your answers !!

It means that the client has hired a freelancer to complete their job. The job is not closed because the client has left it open just in case the freelancer doesn't work out or if they find that they need to hire more freelancers. The client may have just disappeared without closing the contract and the freelancer hasn't closed it themselves.

It can be a annoying at times. All those active proposals where the client has alreay hired someone else.

I usually just withdraw my proposal and then it goes away and is archived, I believe.

Thanks for the answers.

There should be a dashboard or something to archive these proposals, so they are out of my focus. Something like MS Outlook which allows creating and edit folders and move messages.
