Time tracking

Hi 

I have never used the time tracker before but I need to use it now for a job offer I hope to get after a test. I've downloaded the desktop app and logged into my account but my time tracker window is empty (no contracts) and there's no toggle button. Should I be worried? The massager is working fine with all previous conversations. Please Help!

You can only use it after you have been hired, not when you only have a job offer. If the contract is hourly, it will appear in the tracker.

Hi Susan,

 

You were not hired for this job and shouldn't provide any work until your client sends you an offer and a contract is created under your My Jobs tab. Please note that any request for free work is not allowed on Upwork, and it is a violation of Upwork's Terms of Service.

 

Please check this post for the freelancer resources and tips for avoiding questionable jobs that we put together to help freelancers make decisions whether to work with a client or not. 

 

It is always good to communicate and politely explain everything to your client to avoid any misunderstanding. You can discuss the terms of further engagement on the contract and attempt to resolve the situation amicably.

Another thing - be careful with free tests. Many people will try to take advantage of freelancers and never hire them. Asking for a free test is not allowed.
