As an agency owner or business manager you can send proposals on behalf of your agency freelancers. The client will then send an offer to that freelancer through the agency. You'll also be able to accept of decline offers on behalf of that freelancer. Check out this help article for more information about running agencies.
What if I have won a contract on my agency and now want to assign it to a suitable freelancer? In my case, client simply hired my agency and not a specific freelancer.
Kashif, you won't be able to re-assign a contract for which you have already accepted the offer yourself. You are the freelancer the client has hired for the contract.
That's correct, Kashif. Once the client hires a freelancer under an agency, the payment for the work done by the freelancer goes to the agency's account. Agency owner is then responsible for paying the freelancer.
And How I help a client to make a contract with a specific freelancer? Is there a link I can share or the freelancer? how can I be sure they make the contract through the agency if I contact freelancer and client?
I just opened the agency and It´s confusing.
Is it possible to have an hourly rate job that all the agency can log and work in ? Or each freelancer needs a contract? This is the main reason why i changed to agency and hope this features are included.
You can send the link to the freelancer's profile to the client and they can send the direct offer to them. Here is how. If the freelancer is an exclusive member of the agency or has agency set as their default team under Settings> Teams, the contract will be created under the agency once the accept that offer. Business Manager of the agency, will be able to check and manage the contract. However, only the freelancer hired on that specific hourly contract can log time on it. Other users can't directly log into the freelancer's account and log time.
