One issue I have had so far is the program wouldn't let me resize it and so I couldn't see the boxes to enter my login information. I just closed it and restarted, but that was weird. I hope my time tracked for me when I was tracking yesterday.

This is not rocket science. You cannot update a program without allowing users the options of reinstalling an older version just in case your update malfunctions just like the upwork app did this past 24 hours.

Thank you I didn't notice that...
but for my defence I didn't switch to Client, the app did that after the update without me noticing...

It is really inconvenient for me that I can't see the current tracking time, but instead the whole day.

I'd like to have this option, honestly.


How can I just post a message here without having to reply to someone?

Hello Upwork. In practice not all your updates provide real improvement. After last time tracker update you hide time of current session. It was very comfortable tool to know when I started to work, especially with bad internet connection, when screenshots cashed. Also, if I start to work few times a day - I need to know how match I work and when take a break. I want to see it in your tool, and not keep in mind time when I started to work. Please, in your next update put time of current session back. Thank you

C'mon, Upwork, when you upgrade something, it is supposed to be an  improvement.


As a user, I do not see any improvement. Since the most recent "upgrade" to TimeTracker, the app:


1) No longer tracks time for the current sanction.

 2) No longer appears when I double-click the Upwork icon on my Windows desktop. Instead, I am taken right to the message list of one of my current Upwork clients. I then have to close that useless window and double-click the Upwork icon again, which actually opens TimeTracker.


Please improve us back to the old version.


Thank you.
