What's with RSS Upwork?

Hello @ Upwork

Ok, so I started using RSS Feeds from Upwork a while back. It looked great and the feed contained lot of good information that help a freelancer quickly assess job potential e.g.  Job Heading/Desc, Client location, Budget (in case of fixed contracts), Job Category and Skills requested by the client etc..

 

A month or so back, I noticed that "Skills" section disappeared from the RSS feeds. And couple of days back I noticed that the "Job Category" section also disappeared. All that's left now is Job Desc/Heading, Client Location, Time posted and budget (for fixed contracts). Could someone at Upwork tell me what's going on with RSS feeds?

 

Thank you,

Aman

I also noticed this issue. Now you need to read through long descriptions to understand that this job isn't for you because it might be related to some other area and it just matches some keyword instead of quickly looking at skills and category. Is it possible to bring these fields back?

Hi Goran, 

 

Can one of your team members reach out to me via ticket if it isn't possible to answer here?

Hi Alexandr, 

 

Please bear with us as this may take a little time to get information since weโ€™re waiting on a response from another team. We appreciate your patience and will update you as soon as possible.

 

Thank you.

Still nothing? It greatly complicates the search for new jobs.

It takes too much time for such a simple question: where are the missing fields on RSS feed?

And it has two simple answers: "We accidentally removed it and working on bringing it back" or "We decided that these fields not necessary and won't bring them back". How hard can it be?

Hi Amandeep and Alexandr,

I understand your frustration with this and I`m sorry about the delay.

One of our team members will reach out to you both via tickets and assist you further with your RSS feeds. Thank you.
