I need to add a milestone to an active contract. I'm not seeing the +Milestone button anywhere when I'm viewing the job in the My Jobs tab. Help please!

Hi Jessica, 

Once a contract is created, all future milestone creation and updates must be done by the client. Freelancers only have the option to propose milestones during the proposal/interview stage. You may read more about it here.

Hello, could you please provide a screenshot of the 'Add or Edit Milestone button - I don't see it anywhere. The text description is not useful, thank you

Hi Andrew,


I checked your account, and the contracts you have on your account are for hourly. With hourly contracts, you do not need to create milestones. Freelancers log their hours using the Upwork Time Tracker App and you can review the hours by checking their work diary. I encourage you to check this help article for more information.
