FYI: Some freelancers may show as ‘Pending’:
These will show in the ‘Pending’ tab:

Please note: If a freelancer is removed from a shortlist, we do not message them. If you would like to let them know they have been removed, you will need to contact them directly. This can easily be done via the messaging function prior to deleting them from the shortlist.
