We're gradually rolling out an updated version of the contract workroom. So, if yours looks a little different than what's described here, don't worry.

To help you organize and complete your projects, we created contract workrooms.

The contract workroom is a page with everything you need to collaborate with talent on contracts, all in one place. It has details about your contract and action buttons for working on the contract. Each contract has its own workroom, even if you have multiple contracts with one person.

You can access it through the Jobs and JobsAll Contracts pages by choosing the name of a contract.

In the contract workroom, you can:

  • Search and send messages and files, or start a video/audio chat
  • Schedule a meeting
  • Make payments and review your billing history and invoices for that contract
  • Check your freelancer's Work Diary and timesheets (hourly contracts)
  • Raise rates, adjust weekly limits, allow/disallow manual time, and manage activity codes (hourly contracts)
  • Review, approve, and create new milestones (fixed-price contracts)
  • Review or add items to the to-do’s list (hourly contracts)
  • Access the original job post and proposals
  • See your freelancer's verified name

Using the contract workroom


You can access actions to take on the contract from the ellipsis drop-down menu (...) at the top right hand corner of the contract workroom page. The options you see in that drop-down menu will vary depending on your contract’s current status.

You can also open the header tabs to access specific information and actions for the contract. Learn more about what’s under the header tabs by opening the dropdown headers below:

Overview

From the overview tab, you can see the contract’s to-do list, this week’s billings, and recent files. You can also add to-do’s and upload files.

For fixed-price contracts, you can see milestone timelines. You can add or edit milestones, review and approve work, and request revisions from here.

The overview section also has action buttons for taking the next step on your contract. For example, if talent has submitted work on a fixed price contract and is waiting for payment, you’ll see a pay button. If the contract is already finished, you’ll see a leave feedback button during the two-week feedback period.

Timesheets (hourly contracts)

For hourly contracts, you can see talent’s Work Diary at a glance under the timesheets tab. You can also view recent transactions for the past 30 days.

For information about older transactions, you can choose the transactions report button at the bottom of the page to easily access that report.

Messages

View your messages with talent or send a message. You can also view attachments, schedule a meeting, or record and share a Loom video on this page.

Details

In the details tab, you’ll see a summary and description of the contract. On hourly contracts, you can also raise rates, adjust weekly limits, allow/disallow manual time, and manage activity codes. You can view the original job post and proposal from here by selecting those options below the description.

You can also see any feedback on the contract, recent activity, and information about your talent on this page.
