What’s an Extension
An extension occurs when a client chooses to continue the work being done with the expert on a project. When an extension is initiated, the expert will be prompted to submit an extension proposal with a description of the additional work to be done, deliverables, timelines and fees.
Requesting an Extension
Clients can request an extension by clicking “Extend Project” on the top right of the workspace. Confirming the extension request will send a notification to the expert to submit an extension proposal.
Reviewing an Extension Proposal
After the expert completes and submits the extension proposal, including a description of the additional work to be done, deliverables, timelines and fees, the client will be notified that the extension proposal has been submitted.
To review the extension proposal, login to Catalant and visit the project workspace. Clients will have the option to request a revision or accept the proposal. Once the proposal is accepted, the expert will receive a notification to sign the project agreement.
Viewing Projects with Extensions
When the extension proposal has been approved and the project agreement has been signed, the client and expert will be able to see a summary of payment information for all proposals on the “Payments” tab. The timeline will include all fees agreed upon in the proposal, and the payments summary will include the total fees and expenses across all proposals.
