Hi Fiverr Community!
I wanted to share a tip that I found useful (and actually tried out just before writing this post).
First, some context…
Custom gigs that are sent without expiration time limits can hypothetically be accepted at any time.
With this in mind, there’s a chance that you could find yourself with an unexpected active gig while on vacation or after having significantly increased your prices.
To avoid this, I have a 3-step solution!
Step 1: Click onto your inbox from the dashboard
Step 2: Select the “all conversations” dropdown
Step 3: Select "custom offers"
Now, you have effectively filtered out any conversation that doesn’t at some point contain a custom offer. Here, you can quickly go through and withdraw old custom gigs that were never accepted. In doing so, you can avoid unexpected gigs filling your queue or receiving an order while you are out of office.
I hope this helps!
(p.s. I now usually set a 2-day expiration time limit for any gigs that I send out)
