Re: Add Portfolio Project to General Profile

I created new "specialized profile". First turn off was I can only create two specialized profiles, so in total I have three profiles. Not a big deal but now I am facing an even bigger issue:

 

I can not add a portfolio item to my general profile. The portfolio I am trying to add doesn't relate to my two specialized profiles and should go to my general profile. But there's no way to do that. 

 

Currently, I see these options on portolio editor:

As you can see under specialty, my two specialized profiles are listed. Ideally, if I leave that blank the portfolio should be added to my general profile but I can't leave it blank.

Hi Danish, 

 

I would like to note that your general profile is the original Upwork profile you created before we launched specialized profiles. For your specialized profile, you can highlight your expertise. You’ll create a unique title and description, have the option to set another rate, and also be able to show only the Upwork contracts and portfolio items (from your general profile) that are most relevant to that particular expertise. For example, you can separate out the work you’ve done as a Search Engine Marketer, and Content Writer. 

I would like to confirm that there is no option to add a portfolio item to the general profile. As such, if you add a portfolio item to each, it will automatically be listed on the portfolio section of your profile.

Maybe take this as a feature request. There should be a way to add portfolio item to the general profile. I want to add a 'web desgin' that's not relevant to either of my specialized profiles (Search Engine Marketer or Content Writer).

I think it needs to be submitted to the team for consideration again. This is a serious issue. Now all I have that's updated on my general profile is books. I am unable to show all of the other things I do. I deleted most of the old items on there, planning to update them, expecting Upwork's website to operate as it should.

 

It was submitted July 9, exactly two months ago. It should have been fixed by now.

This is still an issue has anything been done to fix it? I only have one specialized profile and have been unable to add any work to my general profile.
