Managing Instant Hire Projects
Opening an Instant Hire project provides employers with the ability to hire numerous Freelancers without having to review each and every application. Instant Hire projects are best for projects which require a large number of Freelancers to complete the same project and with Instant Hire options this allows you to manage these Freelancers with as much ease as possible.
You will notice three columns on the Instant Hire Dashboard
Working: These are the open contracts which are currently being worked on by your Freelancers. This is where you can chat with them and review their work or Proof Screenshots.
For Review: These are contracts that have been submitted for review by the Freelancer. This column is where you will review their work and decide to either pay them, send the contract back to be worked on some more, or decline payment for incomplete work.
Here we will lay out all of the statuses for Working and For Review Contracts in a Instant Hire project.
- Working: Working status means that the Freelancer has begun working on your project
- For Review: For Review status means the Freelancer has submitted their work for you to review and either release payment for the project, or send back for more work
- Past Due: Past Due status means the Freelancer has not completed the project on time.
- Failed Review: Failed Review status means the Freelancer submitted their work for review and you have sent the work back to have changes made
- Reopened Pending Start: This status is applied to a contract after you have reopened the contract and moved it back to the Open column. This status appears before the Freelancer has begun working on the contract again
- Edit Under Review: Edit Under Review status means you have made edits to the project and the Freelancer is reviewing the edits to determine if they still wish to work on the project. If the Freelancer decides to continue working they can simply accept the edits. If they decline to continue working then they can quit without any penalty to you or them
Closed: All contracts present in the Closed column of the Project Management page have either been closed by you, the Employer, or by the Freelancers themselves. You have the ability to close a contract at any point, while the Freelancer has the ability to quit a contract at any point. Some of these options will harm your Payment Percentage scores and some will not.
The Latium platform provides it’s users with multiple options to manage their open contracts, depending on the statuses those contracts are in. To see which options are available to you simply click the three dots next to the status to open up the options:
Below we will list the options that will be available and describe what actions they take.
- Add Time: This option provides you with the ability to add more time for the Freelancer to complete the project
- Pay: This option will Pay the Freelancer and close the contract. This option cannot be undone.
- Fail Review: This option will fail the submission and alert the Freelancer to try the project again
- Cancel Contract: This option declines payment to the Freelancer and closes the contract. You can always reopen a contract in case of a mistake.
- Reopen: This option will reopen a closed contract. You may need to change the due date in order to reopen a contract. This is available in case of a mistake or if you would like to give the Freelancer another chance to complete the project.
