What if I accept an assignment but can no longer complete it?

We understand something can suddenly come up. If you accept an assignment and can no longer complete it; simply click on the three dots on the top right corner and click ‘Leave Assignment.’

Why did I get a request at night when the request says no night time photos?

Sometimes the user that accepts the assignment cannot complete it in the three hour allotted time. When the job expires for them it goes back out to the queue for another user to accept. This means the assignment may go out again during sun down. We ask users to refrain from accepting these orders as it cannot be completed within the three hour time frame as it is dark out. We are working on rolling out a new feature that can avoid this, please be patient with us.
