I know this has happened and has been answered before. 


Since a few hours ago, I haven't been able to submit my proposal. Is any one here having the same problem? Or it is just me?

There might be some sort of outage - I can't submit one either.

I don't know if anyone else can chime in, It's 2 am right now so probably the server fell asleep. 


We might need to wait till tomorrow don't know if upwork technical is aware of any issues.

Hi Hamza and Joshua,


Your account shows that it is active and it also shows that you have available connects and was able to submit a proposal a few minutes ago. To possibly help on the issue, please try the steps below:

- Kindly use a different browser like Chrome, Firefox, Opera or Internet Explorer to see if it will persist.

- Try to clear cache on your current browser, please see sample;
for Chrome:
for Firefox:

- Try to clear Upwork cookies using this link:

You will be directed to “You’ve been logged off” page.

Restart your browser, log in your account and try again.

If the basic troubleshooting does not help at all, kindly provide us the screenshot of the page with the error message and the browsers you have tried to use so we can escalate to our Engineers for further checking.

I'm in the same boat as this guy about 20 minutes ago the button stopped working - might need to chime us in with technical. can you confirm on your end?

I just tried Firefox and did a master cache clear - looks like a possible outage.


I'm going to sleep lol Smiley Happy. I would recommend saving the job link and coming back tomorrow - the engineers should find out by tomorrow if something is broken or not.
