Hi Avery are you able to notify me when this is fixed? Thanks! My clients can't view any project images.

Yes! I am. I don't want a bunch of different Specialized Profiles. What a pain! Was your problem resolved?

Hi. I only want one Profile. For reasons of simplicity. I am unable to create more than one folder for my portfolio in my General Profile. DO I have to create a Specialized Profile to create another portfolio folder? I have enough to keep track of in my life without worrying about different profiles! lol

Hello, I was doing some changes to my portfolio when I realized that Upwork made new changes to the way we edit it (which is great btw), but I noticed there's one problem in the "update project" tab under "specialty", why I can't choose my general profile as an option? I am using my general profile as a specialized profile too, so technically I can do 3 different things (which are my 3 profiles).


Another thing is that I can't change the order of images, can't choose a cover image without showing it in the album, and every time I need to go to the next tab it gives a warning "Changes you made may not be saved."


Thanks!

Hi Mahmoud,

 

I'd be happy to check this further for you. Can you please share with me a screenshot via PM? I'll wait for your message. Thanks

Upwork has changed the editing on portfolio things in your profile. It now asks to submit a specialty when uploading a portfolio item. 

 

My problem with this is if I want to upload the portfolio item to my general profile, HOW THE HECK AM I GOING TO DO THAT!!! IT NEEDS A SPECIALTY! 

 

Please fix this, the old format was better and easy. Now my head is exploding.

Hi everyone, 


Thank you for your patience as I had to clarify this with the team. Please know that this is working as designed. This is to encourage users to create specialized profiles as this allow freelancers to better customize their skills and experience. You may read more about it here through this announcement post.

Hello Avery,

 

Then how clients would see my profile? i tried to apply for a job post and there is no way i can select a specilized profile to submit my cover letter while applying for a job post.

 

And my general profile is not good as i want to make as you're not allowing me to add or edit any portfolio items, so how will it work? can you please explain with a bit more details please,

 

Thanks!

Hi Path, 


The profile that matches the skills noted on the job post, will be the profile that will be highlighted when your client receives your proposal. Your client will still be able to view your other profiles once they go to your profile page.
