Status Workflow

A project can exist in one of the following statuses:

  • Auction phase

    • Draft: The default status, before a project has been submitted.
    • Pending: Project has been submitted for approval.
    • Rejected: Project has been rejected with a reason.
    • Active: Project is visible to the public.
    • Suspended: Project has been forcibly hidden by an administrator.
    • Expired: Project reached expire period and no worker was chosen.
    • Cancelled: Project was cancelled by the owner.
  • Selection phase

    • Wait: A worker has been selected, waiting for confirmation.
    • Declined: The selected worker has declined the job.
  • Development phase

    • Development: Project is under development.
    • Terminated: Project was terminated by either party.
    • Completed: Project has been completed, waiting for reviews.
    • Closed: Project has finished, reviews have been made.

Wait

The worker has been chosen and should confirm the acceptance. If the worker does not reply within 24 hours, the client has the opportunity to select someone else. If nothing happens for a calendar month (30 days), the project moves to Cancelled status.

Completed

Project is held in this status for 2 weeks (14 days). During this time the client or freelancer can modify their reviews, then they are locked. If no review is left, an automatic 5 star review is given with no comments.

  • is_active: Project can receive bids and contacts.
  • is_approved: Project has recevied approval.
  • is_featured: Project appears as featured.
  • is_urgent: Project appears as urgent, email notitications sent immediately.
  • is_sealed: Bids and contacts are hidden from other users.
  • is_private: Project can only be viewed by registered users.
  • is_hidden: Project does not appear in the main list of projects.
