Not sure how major this question is for everyone, but I'm just curios how Upwork is calculating this "5-day security period" for milestones. I mean, for example, in fixed-price project client has approved a milestone on Oct 22th at 11:00 am. I know that funds will be released at Oct 27th, but what is exact time? Is it 11:00 am, or is it some standard time like GMT midnight? Have anyone checked how it acts?

 No need to calculate.

 

Go to your Reports Overview Page and click on the Pending Tab

 

The date in the left hand column is when the funds become available at 0.01 UTC

Thanks, my concern was that for example if client approved milestone at 23:59 UTC, funds will be actually available in 4 days instead of five. Don't see anything wrong with this, just an interesting moment
