Ability to Flag Specific Messages

What is the possibility of being able to flag specific messages/chats? Or maybe even have specific folders within the messages section so we can stay organized with the various clients & jobs?


I wish I was able to flag specific messages or chats so that I can follow-up or remember to check something out.


Just a thought.

You can do this by clicking the star on the upper right of any message. Note that this is only possible on the desktop version and not the Upwork app. You can then find all starred/favorited messages by clicking on the favorite messages tab.

This is an old thread but I'll just add to Nia's reply that we also recently included the option to mark a message as unread.

Not sure if this has changed in the 2 years since the original post.

Star is now to the left of the messages.

I can't find any "favorite messages tab" in the desktop browser version, am I missing something?

Hi David,


In order to present ''Favorite Messages'' in the Desktop Browser Messages, please switch from ''Show Rooms By Recently'' to ''Show Rooms By Category'' tab in messages.3.png
