Hey all, we’re excited to let you know we’ve just launched a much requested new feature called “stars”. If you find a really stellar Freelancer, Client or Job, you can “star” it so you can come back to it later (and so much more…).
Star a Freelancer’s Profile
If you find yourself on a Profile of a great Freelancer and you want to return to them in the future, you can now star them and they will be shortlisted for you. Or if you’ve searched for a Freelancer and found ones you’d like to follow up on, you can star them then and there. If you find a great Client you can do the same.
Once you star someone, they are kept for you for later. When signed in, just head to the top of the page to the green star and click on “People.”
When starring a Freelancer or Client you can create a new star list to cluster similar superstars together, or add a note to remind you why they rocked.
Star a Job too!
Imagine you’re making your way through some of the hundreds of Jobs we have on the site and you find a truly glittering Job but want to keep it while going on with your search. Now you can also star a great Job, if you want to return to it in due course, no doubt to put in a great Bid.
Never lose a superstar!
Once you find a Job, Client or Freelancer you like and have starred them, you can find them again by going to the star at the top of the page when signed in to your account. Head to the top of the page to the green star and click on “People” or “Jobs” next to the green star.
Once you are viewing your stars, from there you can invite them to Bid on a Job, add or update your notes about why they rock or indeed rock even more. Organise them, so fellow superstars sit together.
This is great, what next?
Soon you will be able to get updates about people you have starred, so if they do cool stuff, you don’t miss out. For example Freelancers who have starred Clients they have worked with will get information if their Clients have posted new Jobs.
Similarly Clients could be updated with information about Freelancers they have starred and be informed on their status updates, updates to their Profile, Jobs awarded, feedback received and much more.
