  1. I just wanted to let someone/anyone know the fact that you even have “The Burrow” is for me outstanding. Especially the section where you meet “ The Taskers”, coming from another platform it is really nice to know there are real people and not just scripted computers on the other end of the text/phone call/ email/ when you really need it. All the tips and training videos are awesome. It appears to me you are serious about building this platform and brand, not just riding the wave of the gig market. Hats off to you all.


  2. Hi. Do I create & submit an invoice at the end of the day if I’m coming back the next day for the same task or do I not create an invoice & submit until it’s completely done which may be a week’s worth?


    1. Hi Kim! Since your task is over multiple days, you can mark the task as “ongoing” on the invoicing screen. This enables you to invoice the amount of hours at the end of each day that you work with the Client. It also enables the chat to stay open with your Client. Over chat, you can set expectations with your Client that you will submit an invoice for the amount of hours you complete each day. Hope this helps, thanks for asking!


    2. Hi Kim! Great question. Since your task is over multiple days, you can mark the task as “ongoing” on the invoicing screen. This enables you to invoice the amount of hours at the end of each day that you work with the Client. Marking a task as “ongoing” also enables the chat to stay open. You can communicate expectations with your Client via chat that they can expect to be invoiced for the amount of hours you complete each day of the task. Hope this helps!


  3. Hello. I was very excited to get my first task then my app stopped working. I’ve tried to delete it and reinstall. Still nothing. It’s been a month. What’s wrong? What can I do?
