Time tracker app says "Connection Lost" even if I have a fast and stable internet connection

Hi. So since yesterday, my time tracker app went offline and said "CONNECTION LOST". I wasn't bothered since it caches up to 12 hours. But today, I logged in and it's the same thing and I'm nearing 12 hours already. I can access every website with no problem, my internet is fast and stable. I cannot even submit a ticket or chat with an agent. Please help as I need to continue the time tracker to continue working. Thank you

Hi Luiggi,

 

Thank you to response on my issue. Now it is working fine.

Hi, I am having the same issue since yesterday. I have already reinstalled Upwork desktop but still the problem not resolved. Going through troubleshooting steps by clearing the cache I am afraid I will loose my all previous memos. Seems kinds risky. How did you find the solution, what were the steps, can you explain in brief, thanks.

Follow this steps.
1. keep your tracker on. 
2. turn off your wifi internet.

3. connect to your mobile hotspot.
4. check your tracker if the problem is fixed if not...
5. Go to the settings and sign out.
6. Sign in again with your Upwork account.
I am sure the issue will be resolved. 

Noted: Make sure during this process, you connect your tracker with mobile hotspot not with wifi internet. if the problem resolved, keep it connected with mobile hotspot for a while and then connect back to the wifi internet.

For the last few weeks I am also getting this error all the time.   I am doing online development, so I KNOW my connection is stable and working when I am trying to track time.   
SOLUTION - ALTHOUGH TEMP FIX (Win10):

- EXIT out of the App using the Settings  Icon - Do not just close the app

- Open the app again

- The App then starts to sync the work done while it was "offline".

 

I just do not have the time at the moment to go through a lot of troubleshooting steps, I hope someone at Upwork will poick up on this and fix the issue on a new release.
