Hi Nic,

 

Feel free to use the location filter under the Advance option rather than typing the country's name as a search keyword.

I tried that and it doesn't come up either. Does it work in your browser?

It isn’t there, but searching for cote d’ivoire In the text part of the search works. Then you can refine the search further with filters.

Thank you for your reply, thing is I see very few when I search that way. Is it a known bug?

There ARE very few active ones, that’s why. If I remember correctly the Ivory Coast was on the US sanctions list for a long time, and freelancers from there not able to work on Upwork.

Remember that Upwork now sets freelancer profiles to private if they have been inactive for a period of time, so you only see ones that have had some activity in the past 30 / 50 days.

OK sure, but still doesn't resolve my issue with the filter not working. How many are you able to see?
