This guide explains the feature that requires the freelancer to complete the introduction field before their profile can be activated.
Step by Step Guide
This feature is enabled in the admin dashboard by selecting “Require freelancers to input an hourly rate on their profile to be activated?”
We suggest having this feature enabled so that freelancer profiles have enough information about the freelancer for the customer to be able to make a sound decision on the talent they are planning on hiring. The location of the introduction section can be changed by dragging and dropping the ‘Introduction’ option in the list as seen in the image below. Note that the introduction field must be enabled for the activation requirement to be enabled.
The other requirements that a freelancer may have prior to their profile being activated can be found in the admin dashboard, under the ‘Users’ menu item. Then by selecting the user in question the “Verifications left” section shows the other steps required for the freelancer’s account to be visible to customers and for the freelancer to start applying for jobs.
