I ask because it doesn't seem like i can add new portfolio pieces to my profile without doing creating a specialized profile. But, since i'm specifically marketing myself as a generalist/jack-of-all-trades, i don't think it would be wise to do that. Is there any way around this (i.e., when i hit the "+" button, it immediately pops up the "Highlight your portfolio" prompt)?
Sorry if this has been answered before, the search doesn't seem to be the greatest.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I just got this porblem today as well. There is a workaround for this that i have found though. You can simply create a new specialized profile and after that add items to the original portfolio. Later you an delete the specialized profile. Although i am not sure if it is a violation of upwork rules or not
Thanks for sharing this - it works! A bit of a pain (as I have to add my deleted profile back again after doing this), but a good solution until they fix the issue. All they need to do is add "General profile" from the dropdown, so you are not forced to choose a specialised profile!
