Thanks, Sanja. Just to clarify, I'm aware of the feedback we received from some other freelancers. The information I shared in my response to your post can also benefit other users, who might not be aware of our previous conversations or the roadmap and actions our dedicated team is taking while developing this feature further. I understand the problem and your sentiment towards the Specialized Profiles feature, and that has been shared with our team. I'd like to confirm we are getting positive feedback from both freelancers and clients, and are also seeing positive results when reviewing the metrics we're monitoring.
Hi Concetta and Kishion,
I checked your account, and it looks like you only have one specialized profile. The option to delete the specialized profile is not available in this case, and this is by design. We are now encouraging users to have a specialized profile so we want to ensure everybody owns at least one. Thank you.
Joanne - In an Upwork help section, it says I can't delete a specialized profile if I have only one - but that I can unpublish it so it won't appear on my profile. There is no ability to do that on my new profile page and I would like to know why. I do not want a specialized profile and I want to know why I am being forced to have it. If I don't get a transparent answer, I will write to the President of Upwork to see if she can give me one.
