Proposals are submitted, but updates unknown !!

Hey There!!

It’s great to be on Upwork.

I was wondering if there is any way we could ever get to know the actual status of our proposals, which we send in response to the jobs posted. There are proposals as old as 15 days, but there is no single update on that.

Is it really so??

I was hoping, there has to be some end date of the proposal. It must expire at the end though. And, at least there should be some kind of Analytics to be sent by Upwork, informing us on the actual progress - like, if it was read or what. like, if the client chose other freelancer...and so on.

Hope others also feel the same way, and hope someone would respond back to me.

Regards
Chetan A.

Hi,

In my case what I do is, open each job once a week, and scroll down to see if the client has hired someone or not, if hired, I will cancel the proposal, and leave the rest as it is, because, even the proposals are weeks older still there are chances for me to get contracted for the job once client see my proposal as I'm well written each proposal, so I keep applying for new jobs that suit for me.

Jobs expire after 30 days of inactivity. And no, I don't want to receive updates. When I write a proposal, I forget about it until I receive a reply from the client.
