Working!! UpWork Desktop App On ChromeOS*

It isn't, it seems. Same goes for every other company when adding their features onto Chrome OS, things that are very crucial for online work like Skype and others. It's a shame. After a lot of work into my profile I realized that I cannot actually work on UpWork unless I have a real PC. I am unable to buy one so this makes me quite literally too poor to work. I'm sure many people share the same experience. Hopefully one day this will become of importance to the UpWork programming dept.

You can work on Upwork, the only thing you can't do is use the tracker.  Just use fixed rate contracts (which are WAY more common in your category) or manual time and use your earnings to buy a machine that supports the tracker,  even a used one will do the trick.

Hi Avery, I have the relavent logs. Where should I upload them to? (I cannot attach them to this post as .zip and .log files are unsupported file types.

 

Items of note:

1. Screenshots do not work within ChromeOS or the Linux container.

2. Activity tracking does not work with ChromeOS, but seems to work fine for apps used within the Linux container.

 

--I'm not sure anything exists that will fully bridge the gap between ChromeOS and the Linux container for these features, but I guess I'll leave that up to your software engineers Smiley Happy

Without screenshots the workaround is completely useless. You might as well use manual time.

Hi Avery,

 

It will be very much appreciated and will be very helpful if Upwork Desktop App becomes available for download in Chromebook. 

 

Thanks.

You can also run the installer by moving the file to My files/Linux files, right-clicking, and selecting the option to install:

Make sure the installer is in the correct location in order to install from the Files app.Make sure the installer is in the correct location in order to install from the Files app.
