Hi Muhammad,

 

We aren't aware of any plans to add this feature. If anything changes in this area, we'll make sure to inform the Community.

 

Thank you.

Hi, Would like to know is there been any progress on the message seen. 


The vast majority of professional Upwork users are dead set against this.

I think This would be great. Because I, as a seller, keep on waiting for the reply of my client, (when we are discussing a project and order is not placed). And Sometimes, the client just ignores the message of the seller and hire someone else. If he saw our message, we will know that he doesn't want to hire us, or may need some more time to reply. 

 

I think Good clients should leave a message "that they hire someone else". Well, It would be good if you only introduce "message seen" But not the time when It was seen.

No. It wouldn't. Upwork asked us once if we would like that and the vast majority were quite rightly agaist it.

 

I set my profile so clients can't see if I am online or not too. I read a message as soon as it comes in, but I reply as soon as it fits into what I am doing, especially if the response requires more thought.

Someone you are being interviewed by is not "your" client.

If a client does not reply to you, forget all about it unless the client comes back.

No, of course you don't. They don't exist. The OP suggested such a function, we said "NOOOOOOOO!!!!" Upwork thankfully listened and never implemented it.
