All jobs showing (incorrectly) as "previous client" and the client's name....

Job feed glitch?

I love that you can now see on your job feed that a job has been posted by a previous client.  My question - Does the previous client get similar information when you send a job proposal?

That's a very good question. Hopefully a Mod will pop in to answer. Or maybe Jennifer D will be able to give us the skinny about this.

Hi Mary,

 

At this point "Previous Client" badge only shows in Job Search and Feed, so only on freelancer's side. However, something like "Previous Freelancer" badge showing on proposal is an interesting idea. Let me share it with the team.

Thanks, Valeria.  I always identify myself as someone they have worked with before, but a badge or something would be great and save some of my proposal real estate.

Hi. Why I am seeing  "Previous Client" badge in Job Search and Feed? I'm a freelance copywriter. What to do with that and what does it mean?

They have a bug right now.

Previous client getting displayed for every project in the feed irrespective of your history with the client.

It would be a great idea to show previous Freelancer on the Client end

I think this is an error?

All job post on my feed are showing as previous client but I've never worked with them before.

I'm seeing it too. 

 

And no, I haven't deleted my cookies...

I'm seeing it, too.

I can see the Client's name, but not the $ spent and the payment verified tick.

Hi Team,

 

There is a UI bug in Upwork as all the job posting is showing as a previous client at the top. Please have a look and check it out.

 

Thanks

My feed show Previous client for all job . but i never applied on many of them

Look like its a bug, as its showing the same in my profile. Hope so Upwork will fix this soon. 

Same here

If there is a bug that can violate clients' privacy this much, I have no idea if this is how Upwork would like to instill confidence in clients that their info is private and secure.

Cos all clients' names are now showing, whether you worked with them before or not.

The same here.
And it's showing the names of the customers.
They will not be very happy.
Any mod?

Same here. And I recognize none of the names/businesses. Please fix!

I am waiting for the clients posting here because freelancer just found them in the real world.

Hi everyone, 


Thank you for alerting us to the issue! Our engineers are aware of it and are working to resolve this soon. I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. If there are any important updates that we can share here, our team will update this master thread.

Hi Avery, should we apply for these jobs or it's going to make things worse?

Lol..

For a moment this made me completely shocked. I thought why in this world many of my previous clients posted their jobs and not even get a single invite.

I suddenly have ALL the job announcements marked as "previous client".
It also seems that I can apply for the second time for the same project (although it might be a duplicate announcement).

Upwork gone crazy.

Showing all client as previous clients.

What is going on?

Same into my profile and Upwork is looking into it 

Haha, for a second, I thought I could have a new job from my "old clients" ๐Ÿ˜„

And I know for sure that the fix for not showing "Previous client" issue before. Some dev/QA will be in trouble ๐Ÿ˜›

 

Now I can apply and don't have to guess their name ๐Ÿ˜„

yes all jobs are shown as previous clients!

Upwork should take down the site for maintenance, because clients' full names are also clearly visible. This will result in an invasion of privacy and a huge nuisance if freelancers try to contact them directly.

And my job feed is competely normal...Bless their hearts.
