FreelanceEngine 1.7.12 has been released with new changes in the complete project and dispute flows. Other improvements and bug fixes are also concluded in this version.  

Change The Complete Project Flow

  • From now on, a project will be marked as “Completed” right after employer reviews and rates for freelancer. It means that freelancer isn’t required to review and rate for the employer as before.
  • Workspace is accessible at any time, even when the project is already completed.
  • [Workspace] Attached files are separated from the chat box. Instead, they are separately shown on the right sidebar for easy following.
  • [Workspace] Re-style the conversation chat box.
  • Re-design the finish project modal.
  • A new button linked to workspace is added, allowing employer and freelancer to review the working process of a completed project.
  • After the project is completed, both employer and freelancer cannot send or delete any messages as well as attach any files.
  • Notification is seamlessly sent to freelancers once their working project is completed.

Changes in Escrow System

  • Money is transferred after employer reviewed and rated for freelancer.
  • Manual transfer function for Credit & Stripe Escrow is available.
  • Remove the Stripe fees option.

Re-design the dispute flow for better UI/UX

  • The dispute feature will be automatically disabled when you turn off Escrow system.
  • Seamlessly display the status of a disputed project (Disputed & Resolved).
  • Both freelancer and employer can access the workspace during and after project dispute. However, they cannot send messages or attach files.
  • Freelancer, employer, and admin can review reports given by two parties as well as the admin’s decision after dispute.
  • Re-design the project detail page of a disputed project for better display.
  • From now on, admin has to click on the “Arbitrate” button to resolve the dispute from the front-end.
  • New resolve dispute modal for admin to resolve the dispute, including a comment area and options for money transfer.
  • Email is seamlessly sent to both freelancer and employer after admin arbitrated.
  • Re-design the credit tab in the user’s profile page.

Other changes

  • Show notification for no results filter in the projects/profiles page.
  • Adjust the appearance of the project milestones in the workspace.
  • Change text in the About Employer block.
  • Rating and review seamlessly display in the employer’s public profile.

    Thanks for the info!
    But i don’t see yet the “new version avaible” message and the “update now” button in the WP admin route Appearance → Themes → Theme Details

        Hi, when I update, appears this message:

        An error occurred while updating FreelanceEngine: The package could not be installed. The package contains no files.

        Hi Thao le,

        I created ticket directly after your response but no reaction.
        We know you have delayed support now but would have been nice to get response within 24hours because that was before the delayed support started.

        Really need a working website again.

        Kind regards Kevin
