Valeria, apparently there's another problem - freelancers' responses to client feedback is also not showing on the profile.

Just a couple of words of advice, TEST, TEST, TEST, and then TEST it again!



Maybe some day all these are going to be cool, but if they don't work you're just alienating your users. Me, personally I don't care about these new "cool" features, to me basic things need to get fixed before adding any new features. Adding new features is not going to make the other bugs get forgotten. It just doesn't work that way.

Each and every test I took are now showing in my profile:  Even those I opted not to show! Not good! Not good!

(Tried to search myself and found those I chose to hide not showing. I guess I'm good now. Sorry!)

I've created my profile on upwork 3-4 days ago. If I open any job and go to submit proposal it tell me, "Your profile is being reviewed. It must be approved before you can submit a proposal." Anyone can tell me how long will it take to avtivate?

Hi Sagar,


In order to have your profile approved, please capitalize the first letters of your name and revise your overview. Make sure your profile overview it is well-written, does not have punctuation or grammatical errors, words are capitalized where appropriate and is based on your past experience and skillsSince you are a new freelancer and do not have any work history on Upwork yet, your profile overview is very important for attracting clients.


I'd also suggest adding some portfolio items showing your skills and experience, and not displaying skill tests which you failed or have scored below average, until you can retake them and improve your score.
