The dashboard is the nerve center for your site’s users – a single page where they have access to all their notifications, gigs/projects, proposals, purchases, reviews, contact info, site stats and favorites. Each project is clearly marked with their current status.
After a project is assigned to a Talent/Freelancers, both participants, employer and Talent/Freelancers, get access to a unique Workspace where they can both manage the gig/project. It acts like the core hub for a project where all the related information can be accessed and managed.
After an employer chooses a project candidate, it’s important that both parties agree their terms for the project before the official assignment. At this time,employers and Talent/Freelancers can negotiate with each other until they are both happy or unhappy with each other terms.
For each agreed project you can hold the money until work ends (via PayPal Adaptive Payments). On completed projects, the money held in escrow minus any site commissions will be automatically transferred to the freelancer. On non completed projects, employers are automatically refunded.
Employers can easily access their projects proposals from within their dashboard and from there analyze, browse profiles and choose the winning proposal. At this time, the proposal author becomes a candidate to work on the gig/project.
