I can't log into Upwork Help and am hoping you will see this message. I  have followed all the instructions to upload Time Tracker but all it does is to upload Upwork. Where do I find what you refer to as the Upwork Desktop App? I used to have Time Tracker, but I trashed that when I uploaded according to your instructions to upload the time tracker app.

Goran I have followed these instructions over and over. What downloads is Upwork.dmg - and when I install - ie drag into applications, all I get is the Upwork app ... which has been there all the time. Where do I find Time Tracker?

I really am desperate!

Thanks

Penny

Hi Penny,

 

That is the correct process. Once you`ve installed the Desktop app, click on the Upwork app and it will be launched. Then you will need to log in with your username/email and password and once you`re logged in you will be able to select your hourly contracts and track your time. 
To learn more about tracking time with the Desktop app, check out this Help Article. Thank you.

I get as far as selecting my hourly contract - but where is the On/Off toggle? That used to be in the Time Tracker window which doesn't show up anywhere.

Apologies if I am being dimwitted, but I used Time Tracker for years - but not since about 2018. And when I launched that it was still wanting to  link to Elance! I deleted it and Upwork - and reinstalled as per your instructions.

What I am saying is that I only see the Upwork app ... the desktop app is different isn't it? So how do I launch the desktop app? All that shows up is the screen with the green Upwork app that must be dragged into Applications - on that screen.
