Hello,

I seem to have a mistake while entering my rates. And now I am not allowed to modify them.
Therefore my page will be displaying wrong rates (very wrong).
What can I do?

Thanks in advance,

Paula Greyling

Make it invisible May 18, 2004

You can use "Toggle rates visibility" and make the rates visible only to you until you can change it again.

Best wishes,

Subhamay

Correcting rates, 3 months is a lot May 18, 2004

I have to wait until August to change them again.
Doesn't ProZ tech support offer any solution to these kind of problems?

Incorrect rates May 18, 2004

The rates can be edited without any limit for the first 7 days. This is to avoid any mistake entering figures.
The result can be entered and checked for a whole week.

After this grace period, they can be changed only every 3 months.
This is motivated by not having the rates changed opportunistically, every time that a user wants to show higher/lower rate (yo-yo rates?!?)

Hiding the rates will still maintain the incorrect data in the profile, and this may affect the range of jobs for which the user receives a notification, and also the ability to place an offer to some jobs, if the rate offered is outside of the range entered. See the FAQ pages for more details.

In case of a genuine mistake, we can help to edit/delete them. Please submit a Support request.

Rates error. Thank you May 18, 2004

Thank you Gianfranco,

I understand the considerations you expose.
It seems that for some reason my changes where not saved and the rates stayed as they where, wrong.
I will submit a support request.
Regards.
