I hate the messaging system. I have hated it every time I tried it.
How do I make that stupid number go away? The one that used to tell you how many new messages you have?
FYI, I hate this sytem and Upwork, you really need to fix the broken stuff instead of adding more broken stuff!
Too early to be dealing with this nonsense when I actually have work to do! Now, I can't find any of it!

Hi Jean, I tried to look at the Desktop app but there's nothing in it? Can you see your old messages there?
Yes I can see all my current messages. I have not looked for archived yet. Maybe it just takes a few minutes to populate to your new app.
To get the numbers to go away, click away from the current message room. Click another room that you've already read, for instance. Then, click the room with messages again.
It isn't working. It says I have 7 messages or there is a 7 by the messages. I have clicked in, out, off, on.
So frustrating. How will I know when somebody messages me?
Yes, I am an idiot on the computer. I don't have time to mess around with this stuff. I don't want to be in a room with anybody. I want to read my messages, respond and be done.
