This is a great idea that I have thought about it for some time now, a way to showcase some of our best testimonials. BUT to me this is not the right implementation, why should we ask a client for a second testimonial when they already left feedback?
Simply let us select from our job history the testimonials we want to feature, this will also be more legitimate. Otherwise, how can some proof they actually worked together?
Solved! Go to Solution.
While we are excited to share that the feature is proving to be very popular unfortunately we've received so many requests that it's taking us a while to review each one. As a result, please allow 10 business days for your request to be reviewed. We apologize for the delay, but please know we are still testing and optimizing this beta feature. Thanks!

Thanks for sharing your sentiment about the feature we're testing, Wilson! As part of the test, some freelancers will see the option to share great feedback they receive on contracts they complete on their LinkedIn network. This option will appear on some contracts on which feedback is yet to be submitted and isn't available for older reviews you've received.
As Joanne confirmed, we'll share your feedback and suggestion with our Product team. I also merged your post with the main thread where this test is being discussed.
Thanks for the follow-up, Wilson. It appears you're referring to a different feature we're testing, which gives freelancers on Upwork an option to ask past, off-Upwork clients for testimonials, which will be displayed on their profile?
If that's the case, we know many freelancers are seasoned professionals with clients outside of Upwork. This feature is meant to allow those experiences to be reflected on their profile in the form of a testimonial, after being verified on our end.
