I requested to oDesk to add smileys emoticons inside the message section. When we doing conversation with client some times we want to show our emotions to clients and same for clients also. Conversation is the key for creating a successful job and creating a relation with together. So what you all think about that, Please reply... 🙂

Not only can emoticons (smileys) be used in many creative and humorous ways, but they are also useful for communicating with people whose first language isn't English. Having said this,I don't think it would be very professional to use them when communicating on a business footing.

Hi I think the emoticons are ok for messaging even during business. I don't know if it's my brain playing tricks on me or not but I could have sworn there were smileys in the message box on my laptop because I remember using them and then I had another client and I went to use them and they are gone!

 

Maybe it was on my phone but why would I have the memory of them on my laptop for? Weird..

Hi Marc,

 

You should be able to add emoji in Upwork Desktop App and in the full browser version either by using the standard ":emoji_name:" format (colon wrapped) or the button you'll see next to the message field:

Unfortunately, emoji aren't available on mobile version yet.

Valeria, 

 

I'm wondering have not you noticed the upwork TOS violation in this thread? Its more than an inapproproate profile picture.

Hi Kanwal, 

 

If you are referring to the profile picture, please note that client-companies can use logos as their pictures.

 Upwork already have this feature in its messages section.

 Probably they didn't when Pawan made that post more than three years ago.
