I have seen this asked many times but have not see a good response so I will try like others have here. Also after reading the forum here it seems very odd that this issue is well over a year old and Upwork still has not updated their procedure.
Problem is whem you to go add a microsoft cert Upwork displays the following:
Microsoft Certified Professional
As part of other changes that Microsoft is making to streamline the certification experience, the Microsoft Certification Profile feature retired on October 31, 2018.
Members of the Microsoft Certified community: you will find all your certification information - exam scores and certifications earned - on your Microsoft Certification Dashboard.
We'll have one of our team members reach out to you directly and assist you further with your concern regarding Microsoft certificates verification, thank you for your patience.
If you try to enter a certification not on the list, you’ll have the opportunity to Suggest a Certification. Occasionally updates will be made, thank you.
I would recommend adding your certification as a portfolio items until our list is expanded.
Regarding your profile, it is accepted and you can start sending proposals once you`re ready. Thank you.
Hi, I'm having the same issue. When I try to upload manual it shows this message "If you have earned an official certification from Microsoft, paste the Transcript ID and Access Code into the box below. We will confirm your certification and it will appear on your profile within 5 days of submission."...I have the certification number e.g. XXXXXX-XXXXXX and I enter it in the text box an afterwards I do click on the "Add Certification" button but passed 5 days nothing happens. Somebody could help me?
I have checked your profile and can't find any certifications for our team to review. Can you please try adding your certifications manually or importing them through Credly? Let us know if you're having difficulties doing so, and we'll look further into that for you. You may also use this help article for guidelines on successfully adding certifications to your profile.
Credly support said that thier partnership with Microsoft has ended and from 1st July 2023 any certification from Microsoft won't appear in credly.
For Manual uploading I have MC ID, don't have transcripts ID and access code, the steps mentioned in Microsoft support blog are no more available as they have upgraded thier portal.
I've shared your report with the appropriate team for further review. One of the members will contact you via email with more information about your submission. You may also access the support ticket linked to your case here. Feel free to coordinate to resolve the issue. Thank you!
