While writting cover letter, I include portofolio and other links. Some links contains number which upwork think is direct contact information. I have also tried to use link format.

Links: Use the format [text](url) or <url>

But upwork is still giving warning in cover letter.

 

Here is the link which I am sharing.

For past 10 weeks, I had jss of 100%.

 

These past 2 week, I added links with numbers .

Now my jss is down 18%.

 

My last job ended in october 2018.

My other upwork job is ongoing.

So how can my jss go down suddenly.

It sure as hell has nothing to do with numbers on your proposals.

Because the JSS is calculated on the best of your 6 month, 12 month and 24 month windows.

When the last contract fell out of your 6 month window (October to now) you no longer had a 6 month percentage, so it defaults to the next best window. Because you have poor feedback in your 1 year / 2 year windows, and no longer have a 6 month window, your JSS dropped.

You can share links on your cover letter, it's not against the Upwork Terms of service.
