When a Client and Freelancer have worked together previously on Elance, they can easily continue working together by creating a Repeat Job.  This allows either the Client or the Freelancer to create a new job without having to go through the Job Posting, Proposal review and Award process.  The Repeat Job will create a new Workroom. No Connects are required for the Freelancer to accept or submit a Repeat Job.

Clients initiating a Repeat Job

AsFor a Client to submit a Repeat Job, please log in to your account and follow the steps below:

  3. Fill in the job details.

For Hourly Jobs, if a Freelancer initiates a Repeat Project, Authorized Hours on that job will automatically be set to 0 and Auto-Pay will be turned off. As a Freelancer, you can propose new authorized hours for this Repeat Project, thereby initiating a terms change to your Client. Upon Client approval of these new authorized hours, Auto-Pay will be re-enabled when the hourly rate becomes effective the following Monday after the terms are accepted.

For Fixed Price Jobs, if a Freelancer initiates the Repeat Job, the job will become active immediately. However, please note that unless the Client funds Escrow, work should not begin.
