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?

Since the moderators don't seem to want to just answer your question...


To post a message in a discussion, you have to reply to one of the messages already posted. If you're not responding  to a specific reply in the discussion, just reply to the first message in the thread. (This is a known annoyance that UW introduced as a "feature" when they "upgraded" the forums recently.)


To post a new question in its own thread, go to the category it will fit into (Freelancers, Clients, Coffee Break, etc, found at the top of the page), and then click the big green "New Topic" button:

Thanks, Jess! When I saw those "answers" from the moderators, I decided that it will be a wasting time explaining that it wasn't the question. But community members giving me a hope that forums, not a completely useless. 


Still, hope that they will hear to the others freelancers and will do something with the upwork time tracker. Seems it is not only me who finds the option to track the current time is a useful one.

Hi Maxim,


I'm sorry the video I shared which you opted not to watch didn't offer a quick and clear explanation of the posting and replying functionalities in the Community, being its purpose. We have created a number of tutorials and resources to help new members get acquainted and learn how to navigate the Community forums, and do direct users to review them in the Community Basics area.

Hi, after last update (to version I'm observing that tracker starts consuming up to 100% CPU resources and it impacts on other applications on my computer (Win10). Also sometimes I see UI artefacts (black rectangles) on tracker interface (sometimes it becomes too slow and unresponsive). Unfortunatelly it becomes absolutely unusable for now and turns my work to headache !!!

How it's possible to rollback to previous version because I can't use this update ? If someone could advice any solution because I can't get any answer from support from last Thursday !

Hi Dmitry, Thank you for sharing your experience in the Community. Could you please confirm if you're running the Destop app on a virtual machine?
