You may have times when you need to reorganize your teams. If you need to move a freelancer’s contract, you can do so by creating a new contract and closing out the old one.

Move a contract to a different team


First, let your freelancer know you’re sending a new contract offer and whether you’re making any changes to the terms. They can accept or decline the new offer or request different terms, so discussing ahead of time is important.

Next:

  1. Go to Talent > Your hires and select the freelancer
  2. In the options menu (...), select Hire
  3. Create the new offer, making sure to select the correct team
  4. Send the new offer to the freelancer
  5. When the freelancer accepts the offer and the new contract starts, end the previous contract by going to Jobs > All Contracts

You can confirm your new contract is active by going to  Jobs > My Jobs checking the list of contracts.

Even though you are continuing to work with the freelancer, the closed contract will show as a finished contract on their work history. You may want to provide feedback to the freelancer, and they can provide feedback for you.

Move a contract to a different account
