Can anybody help me retrieve my job description? I typed for so long and that description makes me attract those in software development expertise. My computer suddenly shutdown and cannot retrieve it anymore since it was not saved.
You should always prepare it in word first so that you can't lose it.
re: "I typed for so long..."
I'm sorry you lost the work that you did while typing up a job description.
It is pretty cool when a web tool (such as the Community Forum) has an auto-save feature. But not all web tools have that. MOST forms you use on websites don't actually have that.
Certainly the job posting form does NOT have that.
As Martina points out, if you have a lot of text to type, you can do so in a desktop-based tool so that the vaguaries and unpredictable nature of the Internet doesn't cause you to lose your work.
But as a practical matter, if you were writing such a long job description that you lost your work, and then felt you need to ask multiple times for ways to retrieve your lost writing...
The job description was probably too long.
You are more likely to attract a higher number of serious freelancers if your project description is informative, concise, and easily readable and understandable in a short period of time.
I appreciate it Mr.Preston.. thank you so much for that advise. can we still get free connects ? i can't buy one since have no balance and all used to submit a proposal. Are there any free connects?
Other than your account balance, you should be able to use a credit card, debit card, or your Paypal account to purchase connects. You may check which billing methods are available to you by going to your Settings page > Billing Methods.
We are beta testing a new way to help you stand out to clients. Now you can optionally bid additional Connects to appear in one of three promoted slots pinned to the top of clients' proposal managers.Learn More
