I have used my connects for proposal. Now there are few job applications which are old or client is not responding to that applications. I withdraw those applications. Now I am expecting to have my connects back as I have withdrawn my applcations from that job application. But I didn't get it back.
Can I know the process of how to get back the connects ?
Solved! Go to Solution.

That is because you never get the connects back when you withdraw your proposals, only if the jobs are cancelled without hire by the client or Upwork.
I can confirm that connects are only returned when the job is cancelled by the client or Upwork team without a hire.
While some clients take time to hire on their jobs and often come back to review candidates weeks after they posted a job, postings with no activity for more than 30 days are automatically closed.
I have question,
What if the client posted a job, then they didn't hire anyone or even interview for 30 days and eventually the job has been closed. is my upwork connect will back?
"postings with no activity for more than 30 days are automatically closed."
That is a very, very ambitious and hopeful claim.
I've experienced countless instances in which posts were active with zero activity for months, never renewed, and long after these posts were flagged numerous times for zero activity/fraud.
Typical "Help" Center response is-
"I have checked this with our team, they have advised that they found no violation or suspicious activity linked to the client."
But I like that your faith in UW's commitment to maintaining a safe and thriving online workspace!
