Review Proposals

To manage your proposals:

  1. Click the Jobs tab to see the My Jobs list.
  2. Locate the job you want in your Open Jobs.
  3. As you review their proposals, take one of these actions:
    • Send Message – Contact the freelancer to discuss their proposal (interview and negotiate).
    • Hire – Set contract terms and, if accepted, hire the freelancer.
    • Decline – Notify the freelancer you are not interested and why.
    • Archive – Hide the proposal from your list without rejecting it.

Want more proposals?

In addition to the freelancers who’ve submitted proposals already, Upwork gives you a list of potential freelancer matches. Review the suggestions and send an invitation to the ones you like. They’ll be notified of your interest and have the opportunity to respond with a proposal. You can also search the marketplace and send messages via the profiles of freelancers you find there.

Incident Status

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.
