Therefor it is IMPORTANT that you report what you have been working on. Together with the work report you can enclose images of what you have been working on that more and less proves that you are entitled to receive payment from the client.

You can download the Excel timesheet under “tools” in the dashboard menu once you are logged in as a freelancer.
