Freelancer Groups were created to build user communities within the platform. It is a place where you can:
● Communicate with your team
● Collaborate on projects
● Receive new projects
● Receive announcements (i.e. product releases) relevant for you
● Be guided on how freelancing works
Groups are of the following types: Public community* groups are created by another users where you can join, Private groups are exclusive to the people invited by the group administrator(s) and collaborators, and Official groups are the ones created by Freelancer.com Administrators.
*Newly created Public community groups are subject to approval, you will receive a chat notification once your group has been approved.
You can access the Groups page by clicking Groups in the main navigation bar, then View All. From there, you will see two tabs: (1) My Groups where you can see all the groups you are in and (2) Discover where you can check official and community groups you may want to join in.
You can also quickly search for a group you are in by using the search bar or by clicking the Group type -- Private, Official, Community to sort your Groups.
