When bidding, when ever I paste external links. they get highlighted with the popup.
"Have you tried Upwork messages? "...
And this I guess is a recent change and this is happening everytime.
I am not sure I understand why I am getting this message and why I cant post external links ?
And what has external links got to do with Upwork messaging ?
You can--just ignore it. It's an automated message designed to encourage you to keep communications within Upwork, but that's not required. And, it's triggered by a lot of strange things. For example, if I paste my profile link into a proposal, the string of numbers in the middle of the link looks like a phone number to the algorithm and it pops up that message.
Besides ignoring the popup, check the box that's labeled something like "don't ask me again for 30 days.", if there is such a box.
