Is anyone else having trouble accessing messages?

Everytime I try to go into my messages with a client it keeps saying error. I was able to get passed that at one point, but it wouldn't allow me to send any messages, and now it's back to the error popup. Anyone else experiencing this?

ACCEPTED SOLUTION

Thanks, that's answered my question as well ๐Ÿ™‚

My messages are working at the moment, but I did get an email a few minutes ago that stated some parts of Upwork was experiencing problems. 

"Fairness is giving all people the treatment they earn and deserve. It doesn't mean treating everyone alike-Coach John Wooden"

And right after I wrote this my messages quit working too lolol

Hi Kayleigh,

 

Katrina is correct, the team just recently identified an issue that is causing problems loading certain pages. They are currently addressing it. You can check this page for updates.

 

Sorry about the inconvenience.

This is definitely an inconvenience.  I interviewed with a potential Client earlier that stated he'd get back with me soon.  He stated he'd contact me via Upwork.  I told him that normally that would be best but that unfortunately Messaging was currently down and shared my personal email and telephone # with him "just in case" as I don't want to miss his follow up.  Hopefully Messaging will be up again very soon (and stay up).   Any "nudges," etc. you can give the team would be sincerely appreciated, Valeria.  It appears that many of us are affected by this.  Thank you.

I'm having this same issue now. Is anyone else? I can't view my messages on my laptop or through the app on my phone. I also didn't receive the usual email notification about a message from a client.

Same here

Hi Naomi and others,

 

We are aware of the issues with the Messages and the team is working on fixing it. You can check status and updates here.

 

Sorry about the inconvenience and frustration this is causing you.

Valeria,

 

Please, when the problem is solved, comment it here and in the other threads in which it is speaking of the same thing.
That way we'll get a warning message.
I can not be watching again and again if it works or not.
Thank you,
Maria

Of course, Maria. We'll update the threads once the issue is resolved.

I'm having the same problem during hours.
A great problem.

Some solution, please. I need to use the messages urgently.

Having the same issue, can't get to messages at all, just this: 

 

 

key: code, value: 500
key: type, value: SERVER_ERROR
key: logMessage, value: Exception occurred : transportLayerDS_roomsDS_GetRoom short-circuited and fallback disabled.
 
 
Does anyone know when it will be fixed?

Still doesn't work. I have a job interview and I can't reply to client's recent message. I don't like to complain, but these bugs seem to be growing worse as times goes by. There's not been a day without some error on the site.

I contacted with a agent. It has a Active incident. You can monitoring his at https://status.upwork.com/

Thanks for posting Lorenzo.

 

I've been trying to send a file to my client via messaging for about two hours.

 

 

Can we have some more exact incident descriptions on the status page please.

 

For example - 'You are unable to send messages' instead of 'Areas of Upwork aren't running as fast as we expect'

 

Messaging is a VERY important function for freelancers and clients. It's one of the main functions of a freelancer platform.

 

Please get it fixed as soon as possible.

 

Please 'tell it like it is' on the staus page instead of some innocuous phrase about running speed.

Now Status says it just does not function at all.

This is a huge problem, I have 2 urgents job by today and the upwork platform doesn't work.
I dont know what can I do if my client give a bad feedback for this issue


๐Ÿ˜ž

I don't think clients can access the message center either, so maybe you'll be okay.

I have had this problems for the past couple of days - a productivity problem. I see messages about this same problem in 2016 but not 2017. Am I the only one?
