Feedback on the new Upwork Team App

Just wonder why my posts here were wiped out?

Short summary of missing posts:

 - new app doesn't track time properly

 - new app is inconvenient to use

 - many people (incl. of myself) lost quite a lot of time/$$$ with Upwork decommissioned old app.


Here're questions I'd love to see Upwork answering:

 - why we (those who generate your income and pay your fees) are chosen to be lab rats... ehm... beta-testers of your new app?

 - why at all you needed new app instead of rebuilding old one /w Upwork logo n stuff?

 - how Upwork is going to compensate time/$ lost due to incompetence of your coders/QA testers?

 - for the time new app being fixed, can you PLEASE let the old app working? I don't want to keep loosing money daily, while your bunch of high-quality ultra-professional coders fixing obvious bugs (last time it took them 3 years)

Hi Vladislav and Maria Marilyn,


We didn't delete your posts but instead moved them to this thread to keep the conversation about the temporary Team App issue some of you were experiencing in one place.

Old app was much better, I could open workdiary from it, it supported shotcuts, there were customizable notification sounds, customizable time of notification popup, etc.

I'm very dissappointed I had to downgrade to the new app and I would like to keep using old app.

Hi Evgeny,


I'd like to confirm that you can still open the Work Diary from the new Team App.

Several new posts from this thread was deleted, I wonder why. But the queue of people using the chat support yesterday does prove that many have suffered the issue. At least, it's resolved now.

Maybe this question was already asked, but how about proxy's configuration support? In new versions I didn't find it and it's very sad, because in older version it exists and I can work through proxy. So do you plan to make it?

Hi Alexey,


I checked with the team and this is definitely on our roadmap. In the meantime, can you please configure the proxy settings on your OS or browser, and let us know how it goes?

Hi there!
I have read the updates about team app, none of them applied to me after update, it is working even slower and worse than ever. I Lost many hours while tracking even online.
Offline tracked time never adds.
Please improve it so that people may not lose their precious hours of work.
Thank you

Hi Ivo,


I've been having problems opening the new app on my desktop (and laptop), and this issue has been pending for almost a month now (please check Request #5353808). Could you please expedite the solution on my issue? I badly need it ASAP. Thanks!
