Where can I see delivered work?

Hello all,

 

Where can I see the work I delivered to the client?

 

I went to Submit Work/Request Payment, delivered the files needed and I can't those files anywhere.

 

Can you tell me how can I see it?

 

Thank you!

Milos:

Honestly, I don't know that such functionality exists.

I don't think it does and I don't rely on it or plan on it.

 

That is what Cheryl was suggesting you do (and what the rest of us do):

 

Use your own copy of the files as reference. Keep track on your own system of what you submitted.

 

If you feel like being able to view previously-submitted data files would be helpful, then bring that up as a topic in the Forum, including in this thread. Just keep in mind that even when new feature suggestions are generally agreed upon to be good ideas, it doesn't guarantee that Upwork will adopt them, or that they will be implemented quickly.

It should still be on your computer.

 

When you upload the file on Upwork, it doesn't delete it from your computer.

Hi Milos,

Please click on your "My Jobs" tab and then go to "All Contracts". You can select the contract in question, and then click on the 'Messages & Files' section, and all of the files shared between you and the client will be on the right hand side of your messages with the client.

Hi Nina,

Thank you for your response.

 

I can only see previously sent files and messages, not delivered ones.

 

I had video chat with UW agent to confirm my profile. They said I'll get some confirmation e-mail within 24 hours. Maybe that is why I can't see those files?

 

Thank you.

Files uploaded to message rooms by both clients and freelancers remain in those message rooms in perpituity, as far as I can tell. But of course client files are kept on my own system.

 

To the OP, sometimes when I upload final files to the contract/get paid page, I also upload those final files to the message room as well (I let the clients know I'm doing this so as to avoid confusion). I started doing this when some clients were having problems finding or accessing the files via the contract page, for some reason. It doesn't hurt to have a back-up plan.

 

If you're not doing this, you should be keeping a record/files of all your projects on your own hard drive or back-up system.
