FAQ

How Do I Chat with My Freelancers?

To chat with your Freelancers on a specific project please visit the Project Management view of the project you are looking for. Once you are there you can chat with each Freelancer individually by clicking the Chat option on the contract.

How Do I Make Payments?

All payments in the Latium Platform are priced in USD (United States Dollar) amounts. Payments are made, however, using the cryptocurrencies supported by the Latium Platform.

You price the project in USD and select the cryptocurrency you wish to use to make the payment. Once a contract is created between yourself and a Freelancer that current USD equivalent of that cryptocurrency is locked and awaiting to be paid upon project completion.

Once the project is completed to your specifications you can either select the Pay Now option at the bottom of the contract or in the side menu

 

How do I Edit My Projects?

To edit your live project visit the For Employers section of the Menu, then go to the Projects I’ve Posted section.

Once there, select the project you wish to edit and open that page. Then select the “View Project” option

You will then be taken to the actual Project Page view. You will see the Edit Project option at the top right of the screen. Click that to begin the Edit process

Review the Confirmation pop-up and agree if you wish to continue. Once you do that your project is in Edit status. You can now make any changes to the instructions of the project, images, videos, screenshot proof requirements, or anything you may need to change. Once you have completed your edits, please scroll to the bottom of the page and select Save.

Changing Project Settings

To make changes to your Project Settings simply visit the Project Management page of the project you wish to change.

This first section will break down the Project Settings for Bid Type Projects

The first option you will see will be to turn on/off the Verified Only setting

Turn on this setting if you wish to only allow users who have been verified through the Latium Proof of Human system to be able to work on your project

The next section you see will be to Close Bidding. This section allows you to either immediately close bidding for your project, or set a date for your project to close bidding automatically

Closing Bidding on your project will simply remove it’s listing from the main pages of the Latium Freelancing platform. The current open Bids and Contracts will not be affected by closing Bidding.

The next option you will see is Auto Pay. Auto Pay is a unique feature that allows you to automatically pay Freelancers who have submitted their work for review. It also provides you with the ability to set a Review Period, where you give yourself a certain amount of time to review the project. If you do not review the project in that amount of time then the contract will automatically be paid

Next, you will see the option to allow Multiple Bids & Contracts. Here you can edit how often a Freelancer can submit a bid for your project and/or how many contracts they can complete on your project.

Finally, for Bid Type projects, you see the Auto Withdrawal setting. Auto Withdrawal allows you to set a minimum starting time for the Freelancer to begin working on the project. If the Freelancer does not begin working in time, then the Bid is automatically declined with no penalty to your Employer Approval Rate.

This section will focus on the different settings available for Instant Hire projects.

There are only a few different settings for Instant Hire projects. The first being the Time To Complete setting. This setting allows you to set a time allowance for the Freelancer to complete the project. Any changes to this setting will only apply to new contracts.

The next difference is Close Hiring. The only difference between this and Close Bidding is the name. It functions in generally the same way as Close Bidding.

The only other setting that is different is Auto Cancel. Turning on Auto Cancel will automatically cancel and close any contract that goes into Past Due status. This does not affect your Employer Approval Percentage.

What are Screenshot Proofs?

Screenshot Proofs is a feature Employers can use to verify that a Freelancer has completed part of the project. You can turn on the ability to accept Screenshot Proofs in the Project Details section.

If you are requiring Screenshot Proofs you may need to provide an example of what type of screenshot you are looking for. You can do this as you create your project. You can always enter the settings to edit your project and require them in the future.

Screenshot Proofs will display in the Project Management area in the contract with the individual Freelancer.

You can either accept or reject the screenshot. You can also chat with the Freelancer there and explain any issues you may have.

How Do I Determine a Budget for My Project?

Determining a budget for your project can be difficult, especially when you are not sure what the going rate can be for someone to complete a project similar to yours. Luckily, Latium has built-in options to assist you in finding out how much you should spend.

When you are creating a project, the options available to you change depending on what you select. For an example, we will be showing how you can determine a budget for hiring multiple freelancers instantly.

First you can select the Hire Multiple Freelancers Option, then select the Hire Instantly Option.

After selecting these options you will see some of the categories which have pre-filled options in the dropdown for you to select:

After you enter in the information for your project you will get to the Budget & Settings page where you will be able to determine how much you would like to pay your Freelancers

The next option is to determine the payment coin, maximum spend, and see the total for how much you will spend

There is one difference between Instant Hire projects and Bid Type projects. With Bid type projects you have the ability to set an estimated budget, which is a range you are willing to pay for a Freelancer to complete your project

All of these options provide a way for you to easily determine and set a budget for your project. If you have further questions please reach out to Latium Support

 

How do I Review a Freelancer’s Work?

Reviewing your Freelancer’s work is an important step in making sure they have completed everything you have agreed upon. To review their work you must visit your Project Management page.

A Freelancer who feels they have completed their work will submit their contract for review. When you visit your Project Management Page you will see all contracts that are in For Review status

To review you can check the chat to see any files that have been submitted or the Proof Screenshots to make sure the correct screenshots have been submitted. If you are happy with everything you can click “Pay Now” to release payment to the Freelancer. However, there are other options if you click the three dot menu at the top right.

All of these options are available to you throughout the review process.

What are the Fees?
What is Bidding and How Does it Work?

Bidding is a feature of the Latium Platform which allows Freelancers to bid on projects posted by Employers. These Freelancers place a bid stating how much they would like to be paid upon completion and when they believe the project will be completed.

Employers can set whether they would like to accept bids when they create a project (which they can edit at any point once the project is live).

Bids allow Freelancers to state their case as to why they should be awarded the project, while Bids provide an opportunity for Employers to review the Freelancers to decide who to award the project to.

What if I am Not Paid for a Completed Project?

If you are not paid for a project you feel you have completed you have the ability to discuss the issue with the Employer through the chat option provided by Latium.

Arbitration and Mediation options will be available on Latium in the near future.

When bidding and working on projects, please be aware of the Employer payment rate you will see next to their avatar. If an Employer’s payment rate is low, they are more likely to not pay.

How Do I Quit a Project?

If you wish to quit a project you must visit the Projects I’m Working On section. Click into the project you wish to quit and select the Gear Box at the top right of the page. Under that you will see the option to Quit. Click that and you will Quit the project. You will not be able to reopen a project once you quit.

Note that if you quit a project your Freelancer Approval Rate may be affected

What Do These Different Project Statuses Mean?

Completing projects in the Latium Platform requires contracts to be in multiple different statuses throughout the process. You can view the status of any contract by visiting the For Freelancers page.

Below we will lay out what each status means for a Freelancer who is completing projects.

Here we will lay out all of the statuses for Open Contracts in a Bid Style project.

How Do I Contact My Employer?

Once you are hired for a project you will likely need to talk with your Employer at some point to answer any questions or issues you may have. The Latium platform provides its users with a chat system inside of each contract for just this purpose.

To chat with your Employer simply visit your For Freelancers page, select the project you are working on and then send chats through the Message box on the lower right side of the screen.

The Latium Chat system also supports the ability to send attachments to your Employer, such as images, videos, zip files, etc

How am I Paid and What am I Paid With?

The Employer who creates the project denotes what coin they will pay with. This can be any coin or token supported by the Latium platform. The payment coin will be listed on the project page prior to beginning the work. Employers can also pay in USD.

Freelancers are paid automatically through the Latium platform once the Employer has approved the work. Some projects can be auto-pay which means once a Freelancer marks the project complete they will immediately be paid. The funds will be deposited into their wallet.

How Do I Mark a Project Complete?

To mark a project complete you must complete all instructions from the Employer and submit any required proofs. Once that is all completed you simply select the “Submit For Review” button below the Messages box

This will notify the Employer that you have completed the project and it is ready for them to review. Once they have reviewed they will release payment if they are happy with your project, or they may send it back for more work.

What are Screenshot Proofs and How Do I Submit Them?

Screenshot Proofs are a feature available for Freelancers to show they have completed the work for the Employer. Some Employers, depending on the type of project they are posting, may require Freelancers to submit proof of completed work before the Freelancer will be paid.

To submit Screenshot Proof simply upload an image on the Contract Page in the area the screenshot is required. For an example please see the video below:

How To Upload a Screenshot

Latium Exchange

The Latium Exchange provides an area for Latium members to buy, sell, and trade cryptocurrencies. Payments for completed projects in the Latium ecosystem can be made using any of the cryptocurrencies Latium supports

By providing our users with an exchange inside the Latium platform, a full economy is created.

Latium Freelancing

The Latium Freelancing Platform has two main uses. The first allows users to enter the Latium ecosystem and complete projects in order to earn income. The second allows users to post projects and find qualified Freelancers to complete these projects.

The first use provides a unique opportunity for users to earn extra income due to the nature of the projects in the Latium ecosystem. These projects can range from surveys and social media activity to graphic design and software development. The Latium project structure has been created in a way for users to simply and easily interact with their employers.

The second use provides a unique opportunity for users who are looking to have projects completed. Latium’s One-to-Many project structure allows a user to create a project and hire as few or as many Freelancers to complete the project as their budget allows. A user can hire one person to complete some graphic design work or hire thousands of people to download and test their app. The contract management structure provides a very simple and easy to use interface to manage all of the people completing the task.

Trading from Your Wallets Page

The unique thing about Latium Coin Cards is that anyone who wishes to claim the coins that are tied to the card will have to create an account at latium.org. That account is automatically tied to the user who created the card and is credited as a referral.

You can create Coin Cards by visiting either the Latium Referrals Page  or the Latium Wallets Page

What is the Referral Commission?

You will earn 50% on all fees and commissions generated by your referrals. These actions include every time your referral does the following:

  • Pays a Project Contract
  • Pays a Project Fee
  • Is Paid for Completing a Project

You can track all your Referral activity by visiting the Referrals page

You can share your Referral link anywhere by simply clicking the “Copy” button next to your link. The more Referrals you bring to the Latium platform, the more you earn. Simple as that.

How Do I Share My Referral Link?

To share your referral link you first need to navigate to the Referrals Page on the Latium platform.

You will then see your Referral link with a Copy button beside it. Clicking/tapping that button will copy your referral link to your clipboard.

You can then paste that link anywhere to share it with friends, family, or anyone else who may want to join the platform to complete projects.

You can also share your referral link by sending someone a Latium Coin Card.

Anyone who receives a Latium Coin Card will need to create an account in the Latium platform to be able to claim the coins. Since your referral link is tied to every Coin Card you create, once the user creates an account then they are part of your Referral network

Your Referral link is 100% unique to your account. This is a great way to earn more income while also growing the Latium Platform.

What is the Latium Referral Program?

The Latium platform provided its users with a unique referral program which allows for multiple ways to earn.

Users are provided with a unique referral link they can share. Any new users who sign up through this link will be added to your referrals. You will then earn 50% on everything those users do throughout the platform.

Every time one of your referrals places a trade on the Latium exchange, pays a contract, pays a fee, or earns a promotional bonus, you will earn 50% of that!

The referral options are constantly evolving so that Latium can provide its users the most ways to earn!

How Do I Submit My Proof of Human Verification?

To see an example of how to submit your Proof of Human please see the video below

Proof of Human

Why Do I Need to Submit Proof of Human Verification?

Proof of Human is a unique verification system which allows users to only have one verified account in the system. Although a user can have as many unverified accounts as they wish, the majority of employers in the Latium ecosystem prefer to hire only verified users. This lets employers know that users are actually real people completing their projects.

It is highly encouraged to verify your account as soon as possible, as most projects in the system are only available for verified users.

What is Proof of Human?

The Latium Proof of Human Verification system is a revolutionary feature of the Latium Platform. Proof of Human requires users to complete a short video via webcam in order to verify the user is actually a person. Through facial recognition technology, users are only able to verify one account and are tied to that account.

To verify your account select the dropdown menu next to your avatar and click Verification. Once there, follow the instructions and submit your verification request.

We believe this provides a great opportunity for users to cultivate a long work history without worrying about fake accounts.

What is Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and How Do I Set It Up?

Two-Factor Authentication is a security measure available to users of the Latium platform which provides an extra level of security when logging in to their account. The main product Latium provides is Google Authenticator. Google Authenticator is a software-based authenticator that implements two-step verification services using the Time-based One-time Password Algorithm and HMAC-based One-time Password algorithm. If you activate Google Authenticator, you will be prompted to enter in a code, provided by Google. To set up Google Autheticator please visit the Security page and select Enable. You will then be prompted with the instructions to set up the Google Authenticator app. If you require any extra assistance please contact Latium Support.

Instant Hire Project Management Options

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.

Contract Options

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
  • PayThis 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.
How Do I Add My Skills?

The Latium Platform provides all Freelancers the ability to add their skills and skill levels to their profile. Adding these skills will make it easier for Employers to find you if you possess the specific skills they require for a particular project.

To add skills visit your Profile on the Latium platform and select the Add Skill option under your Biography

Once you click the Add Skill option you will see the box open up to display an Add Skill box and an Experience Level box. Start by inputting your Skill in the Add Skill box. You will see an autofill options from a dropdown. If your skill is not available, please select the Suggest option to suggest the skill to the Latium Team to be added.

Once you have added your skill you will then need to select an Experience Level. The options for this section are Beginner, Intermediate, and Expert. Select the option that best reflects your experience level at that skill, then hit Add.

Once the skills are added they will be displayed in your profile. These will help prospective employers find you to complete the projects they are hiring for. You can always add, remove, or edit skills.

How Do I Add My Portfolio?

When you first create an account on the Latium Platform you will be asked whether you want to hire or work

By selecting the I Want to Work option you will be prompted through a series of onboarding questions to add your avatar, skills and experience levels, biography, and hourly work rates. After you complete those options you will be prompted to add a portfolio

The first step you see is to add a cover image

This is the first image prospective employers will see when they visit your profile so make sure to add a great one!

Next you will be prompted to add a title, skills associated with that portfolio, and a description

You must also add at least one example in the following format

  • Image: An image example of your work
  • Video: A video example of your work
  • Link: A direct link to your portfolio of work

Finally, after publishing your portfolio you will be presented with your completed portfolio template/preview similar to what is shown below

Select “Finish” to complete your on-boarding information and apply it directly to your Latium Freelancing Platform profile.

The process to add your Portfolio directly from your profile is slightly different. First you visit your Latium Profile and you will see the option “Add Portfolio”. Click that and follow the same instructions listed above.
