I've checked with our team and we're phasing out reporting option for clients on Basic membership plan gradually, that's why you can still see the inactive navigation tabs that will be removed soon. Thanks again for sharing your experience in the Community.
Freelancers may come and go - but deliberately chasing away clients seems a bit foolhardy to me.
Just sayin' ...
After I clicked on dismiss several times I can now see weekly summany. Also, the articles is not saying anything about weekly summary.

I agree, I have spent probably 100k plus to freelancers over the years. On upwork! I can't believe upwork would disable reports we use to manage our freelancers. This is making my job harder. I don't have the complete picture anymore unless I pay this additional fees. That makes it harder to hire more talent. It's very sad to see upwork take such a foolish decision.
Wow so ridiculous that it's so hard to see a basic weekly spend broken down by a freelancer.
This is basic accounting and reporting and the fact that you only get this with a monthly membership, even though we are already paying service charges on each freelancer is pretty outrageous.
I can't think of any other service we use in the business that charges us just to get a simple break down of what we are spending weekly broken down by freelancer being used. Not just a weekly total, I don't need your report to see my weekly total, I can just check my online business banking to see how much you withdrew on Monday.
He is talking about the summary email that comes in after you get billed on Mondays.
It is not on-demand it gets sent in with the receipt and invoice that you get on Mondays.
Though that is a simple thing to include in the upwork dashboard to be able to look at how much im spending week by week across my freelancers.
Heck my meal delivery company gives me a break down week by week depending on how many meals I am receiving, I can go back and forward in weeks and see my expenses, but yet for hiring and managing freelancers I can't.....
Doesn't make sense at all.
Just forcing people to upgrade to a monthly billing plan for basic tools.
