All Things oDesk

We've redesigned our assignment detail page and think it will be useful for all users — buyers and providers alike.

To access the new page, visit My Jobs > Assignments and click on any assignment, active or ended.

For buyers:

The assignment detail page is your central screen for each provider. It shows key information, statistics, and actions all on one screen. Everything you need will be one-click away…

  • see the provider's local time
  • link to the provider's work diary
  • see how much time (and money) was spent last week, this week, and for the entire assignment
  • send a message to the provider or staffing manager
  • change rate or weekly limit
  • make bonus or fixed-price payments
  • end an assignment
  • manage feedback for ended assignments

For providers:

The assignment detail page is your central screen for each of your assignments…

  • view your own work diary for that assignment
  • see how much was earned last week, this week, and for the entire assignment
  • send a message to the buyer
  • end an assignment
  • give refunds

Let us know what you think!

    I hate new design :( old was so cute, it's a pity that it is not possible to use the previous one :(

    I like this update. I'm sure all oDesk users (providers and buyers) would find it very useful. It has simplified a lot of things. Thumbs up to oDesk UI team!
