Greetings to all
I am not not new bee but I am returning here on upwork after four year. so my querry is about a contract which was completed in 2016 but not ended from client side yet. At that time I sent email to clients to end up if no work is there but he left as it is. so it is still showing under work in progress. Can I end that contract from my side? if yes how? will it bring any negative impact on my work profile? please.. give me suggetion.
If a contract has become idle, it is generally best to ask your client to close it and, ideally, leave feedback for you. However, maintaining longer-term contracts with satisfied clients that have been in place for three months or longer can improve your score. These longer-term relationships count positively toward the JSS even before they are closed because they indicate client satisfaction. On the other hand, if a client is not responsive and the work has been completed on the contract, it is better for you to close the contract.
Please keep in mind that when you, as a freelancer, close a contract it will be immediately considered in your JSS during the next update. When you leave a contract open and inactive, the impact to your score takes longer to appear (typically a few months). In both cases, the impact may be the same, but the timing is different.
