I don't know if I ever got a reply to my q, but I asked the same thing in
the community as well as responded to a random email upwork sent me about
something else. My email got an answer. Basically, they no longer have the
option to add portfolios for non-specialized profiles. I don't like all the
extra labor that goes into maintaining multiple profiles... but that's how
it is now!

Hi All, 

Please see an update to Lena’s original announcement about the two new options for Specialized profiles. You’ll now be able to re-order and change Speciality of your Specialized Profiles.

*Update 11/25: 

We’ve recently added a couple of new settings to Specialized profiles. You’ll be able to access them under Settings> Profile Settings or simply by clicking Manage Specialized Profiles link on your Find Work> Profile page. 

 

Change Order of Specialized profiles:

You’ll be able to change the order in which Specialized profiles show on your profile by clicking on the icon in the right upper corner of the Specialized profiles box. 

 

Change Specialty:

You’ll also see a Switch Specialty option for each Specialized profile. That will allow you to change the Specialty of a Specialized profile.

 

 Please, see the screenshot below for more information:

SSL, Cpanel and webhosting may not be specialized profile categories.

 

But you may specify these skills within a profile.

Hi Amir,

 

If a skill isn't available in your Specialized Profile's category yet, you can suggest it. The suggestions are saved and reviewed by the team. Unfortunately, we can't say when a specific suggested skill will be added but rest assured the team is actively working on expanding our list of skills.

 

Thank you!

Hi Gabriel,

 

You can choose the Design & Creative category, there is Brand Identity Design and then Packaging under deliverables.

 

Thank you!

I just created a specialized profile. However, I inadvertently chose "Instructional Design" as the profile name. I want to change it to "Technical Writing" but there does not seem to be an obvious way to edit it. (I'm talking about the title/label that appears in the green oval next to General Profile.)

Hi Laurie,

 

Please go to your Settings > Profile Settings and under the Specialized profiles section click on the three dots. There, under the drop-down menu, you can click on the Switch Specialty and select your new specialty for your specialized profile.

 

Thank you!
