Communication plays an important role in having a great task experience. Both parties are expected to communicate often and well so everything will run smoothly. Some common scenarios that lead to task cancellations are below and clicking the link takes you to what you can do in those situations.

Conflict of schedule between you and the tasker
You found someone else outside Airtasker to complete the task
You don’t need the task done anymore
Tasker did not show up
Tasker is asking for more than the assigned task price
Tasker doesn’t have the skills/tools/materials needed to complete the task
Misunderstanding/Misalignment on the scope of the task

Quality of work is not satisfactory
Sometimes, the outcome may not meet your expectations. It can be a result of poor communication, not setting expectations or it could also be that the tasker is not skilled to perform the task.
If the tasker has partially completed the task or completed the task in full but failed to meet your expectations, they may be entitled to partial payment in recognition of their time and effort. For more information, see our article here.
