Where did the testimonial section go?

Hello:

The last week I asked a few clients to leave their testimonials and for a few days, I saw the "?" symbol saying that testimonials would appear after review. But today I went to my profile to see the state of it and I found they're gone. Where did the testimonial section go? 

 

Regards!

Horace

I asked someone to write a testimonial for me and they submitted it, but I never saw it and now it does not even show that it is pending. All I can assume is that the testimonial was not approved for some reason, but I am not sure why it wouldn't have been. I did not receive any kind of notification or communication about the testimonial from Upwork. I would appreciate any insight into this issue and how it can be resolved.

Hi team,

I've asked my non-Upwork client to send me a testimonial. It has been in review for several days. However, it's not showing now on my profile.

Hello!
I sent a testimonials to three clients, I saw they was on "pending" since on September 8th. But today I can't see any "testimonial" section in main profile settings, and there are no "testimonials" at all in my only one specialize profile. Can you halp me to find a "testimonial" section with the status of testimonials from my clients?

I have sent testimonial links to my past clients and it was showing that the testimonials were pending. I logged back in again today and the entire section has been completely wiped and reset. I tried looking for answers under the help section but there's nothing concrete there. 

Hi Yash,

 

I apologize for the delay in response. I shared your report with our team and I'll be updating this thread once we have more information.

Testimonial Section is not showing up on my profile. I checked yesterday and today as well but the very section is missing from my profile. 

P.S.

Hello!


I have a few issues with my testimonials section.

I requested a testimonial from a colleague. She said that she replied to it. But it doesn't show on my profile. It doesn't even show that it's "waiting to be approved" or something. It only says what it said before when I hadn't requested any testimonials. I didn't get an email either about any refusal if that would be the case. And I get emails from Upwork regularly about how I earned connects, so my email can't be the issue.

 

Now I wanted to go and request another testimonial from a different person, but it doesn't let me click on it! Nothing happens when I click on the "+" sign or "Request a testimonial" button. 

 

Anyone has an idea why that happens and how I can find a way to fix it?

I have sort of the same issue, I have sent testimonial links to my past clients and it was showing that the testimonials were pending. I logged back in again today, and now either of two things is happening, sometimes the Testimonial section completely disappears, and other times when it does appear it's completely empty - won't even show the requested testimonial thing...

Hi Arjay. My problem was solved but it's back. Another client sent his testimonial and the testimonials in my profile have disappeared, all of them are gone. Is it possible that when a testimonial goes pending for review, for some reason everything goes hidden?

Hello Arjay!

My testimonial problem was solved, and I could see my requested testimonial on my profile. Thank you for that!

However, I requested another testimonial, and now I'm facing the same problem. The testimonials section looks like I never got any testimonials. 

Kind regards,
Idil

Hi, so I had this option of requesting Testimonials from past Non-Upwork clients on my profile. . a Few days ago, I requested a testimonial from my previous client (who's not on Upwork obviously), he accepted and submit his feedback yesterday, when I checked my profile to see the testimonial - the whole testimonial section just disappeared! it's not there.. There's no feature/section anymore!
 . Can anyone from support help me, please? Thanks.

update:
Idk how but half an hour later after making this post , the Testimonial Section re-appeard again.
But when I click on "Request a Testimonial" the button seems to be not working, cuz nothing happens after I click on it. 
Also, I don't see the testimonial of my previous client who submitted his testimonial yesterday as I mentioned in original post, and it's also not showing the status of that request. Attaching screenshot.

Hi Samad,

 

I tried but wasnโ€™t able to replicate the issue youโ€™re describing. Could you please try using a different browser or the incognito mode of your current browser? You may also try clearing your browserโ€™s cache and cookies. Also note that we only officially support the latest two versions of Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox and Apple Safari.

 

Thank you,

Hi Pradeep,
Thanks for the reply.
Basically, I'm having issue with "testimonials" section on my profile. 
It just disappears out of nowehere, (attaching screenshot below) as you can see I don't have testimonial section available on my profile.

This problem started right after I requested for a testimonial from my previous client, and when the client submitted their review I found there's no section of Testimonials anymore. 

In short, the Testimonial feature which was available to me on my profile and I could use to take feedback from my non-Upwork clients - just got disappeared from my profile, I cant see that feature anymore after my non-Upwork client submitted their testimonial.

NOTE: I'm using Chrome, and Android app, and facing same issues in both.

 

UPDATE: just got an email from Upwork that my Client's testimonial is approved and now Testimonial Section reappeared on my profile. So It's solved now ๐Ÿ™‚

Good day,

My name is Nick, and I have some issues.

I sent testimonial links to my past clients, showing that the testimonials were pending. I logged back in again today, and now either of two things is happening, sometimes the Testimonial section completely disappears, and other times when it does appear, it's empty - it won't even show the requested testimonial thing.

Please, how can this be sorted out?

same. did you figure out why?

Hi, I was trying to complete my profile and while sending requests for testimonials the section just disappeared. Since then I refreshed and researched every thread but I just can't find why did this happen. And no I am not talking about testimonials disappearing but the whole section. It's not visible, I can't request a testimonial if I don't have that section in my profile. Can anyone help?

Hey Tabina,

 

Have you tried a different browser, may be you had something cache or could be an Upwork bug,

 

I would contact them and ask.

I already contacted them but I have not got a response from them yet. 

The funny thing is the mobile application of upwork is also having the same problem. No testimonial section showing up on my profile. 

Sorry to hear that, sounds like a BUG to me.

Hey,

I've sent five testimonial responses to former clients. The first three ones came through, after the bug mentioned here was resolved: https://community.upwork.com/t5/Freelancers/Where-did-the-testimonial-section-go/m-p/1170836#M710764

 

The other two clients claim that they have written the testimonials some time ago, but they do not show as "pending," like the other three did. They still say "awaiting [Client Name] response."

 

Is there any way to move that process forward?
