I'm working my first hourly job on Upwork and need to know what time today (I think it's) today to enter my hours. Some I will enter manally and will try time tracker for a couple of hours today, wasn't working earlier in the week.

 

I had my first deadline on Friday and submitted work then, doing revisions now.  Job was awarded last week.

 

Thanks for your help. Did read the CS section on that but found it pretty confusing. I just need the basics.

It's midnight UTC, I think. It's 10pm EST for me.

Jacqueline, do it now & you're fine. You still have over 3 hours. But don't wait til the last minute -- save that for taxes. Besides, you don't want to get caught in an unscheduled "site maintenance".

I did it just now and it's logged in on the work diary but that's not showing on the time sheet.

 

Maybe there is a delay? Or do I have to do something besides logging on the work diary?

Hi Jacqueline,

 

Logged hours show in the Work Diary immediately but other reports are updated with a slight delay. As long as you entered the hours in your Work Diary and they show there, the client will be billed.

Jen,

Midnight UTC is 8pm EDT (it varies with seasonal clock changes).

Fun fact: Since contractor payments are issued as of midnight UTC, you can actually claim funds scheduled for release on date x on the evening of date x-1. By PayPal, the transfer should be immediate, even on a Sunday.

Best,
Michael

oops that's right time change! Whoops! Forgot about that.

 

ETA: Yes, I actually only wait 4 days sometimes for my money. Depends on the banks. I get it next day some days but usually 2, so I can withdraw the day before the date on my transactions and then get it 2 days later, so it's usually about 7 days from release to bank for me. 

 

I could shave off a day witht Paypal but since I withdraw as soon as money is available, I'd be spending $20-$30 a month just to get it a day quicker. So I go for the free option.
