I'm working with a client under a contract with a set amount of hours. However, as I near the limit, the client will increase the hours in 40-80 blocks or whatever we negotiate.
We are processing several various jobs under the time constraint. So far we have about 7 different projects running at the same time. So our message string is getting long and with several files being uploaded.
The client and I would like to be able to setup separate catagories or something to help separate each of the jobs without starting a bunch of new projects. At this point the work is just flowing from the client, so we need to be able to stay organized. Normally I would use something like Trello or Microsoft Teams. How do I do something similar and stay in the Upwork ecosystem?

Thank you for the quick reply. I would totally go to another project management platform, but wanted to see if there was something available in Upwork first.
The client works with several people on Upwork and for them, its easier to hit up one platform, handle their outsourcing needs and move on. They are not interested in jumping between various project management platforms between all their outsourcing.
Eventually they might, but for now, I really just need a way to easily organize and manage several little jobs under 1 ongoing contract.
I thought about that and even starting setting up MS Teams and Trello to see which I'd prefer. Then I got the answer below about creating rooms. I'm going to run with the multiple rooms for now.
Thank you very much for taking time to answer my question though!
I have not added a room in the message portion but it sounds like what you want. Make a room for each project and invite your client.
Am I wrong in how this would help?

Exactly what was needed. The client just said it looks like we'll have a house by the time we are done.....I see that as a.......
BIG FAT WIN!
Thanks for the update. I haven't used Upwork's rooms but have used several other project management apps with various clients.
