Hi Dean and Sam,
I understand your experience and suggestion but would like to reiterate that the Upwork Desktop app isn't officially supported on Chromebook. While we are deeply focused on supporting our users there are certain limitations on certain OSs that are preventing the app from operating as designed, which is why we strongly encourage users to use the app on supported OSs.
Dean, I checked your Work Diary and would like to offer advice regarding how the Upwork Desktop app is tracking user activity via private message if you like, since we can't discuss account-specific information publicly. Feel free to select my name > "Message" button if you'd like to discuss this further. In the meantime, please do check the "User Activity" section under the FAQ at the bottom of this Help article for more information.

I believe this is due to a call function for WindowsOS in the Upwork application that is not supported inside Linux (including Debian-based variants), but I've never delved into the app's source code (Violations of ToU and what-not) so I can't make a formal statement as to what keeps it from working.
Follow this TS, My timetracker is working but when it took a screenshot and when I saw the thumbnail for it it just has a big "failed to take screenshot" . I am using Google Chrome OS Version 91.0.4472.81 (Official Build) (64-bit) and running the desktop app by enabling Linux dev software
No, It still does not have public support on Chromebook or ChromeOS and as such, does not allow the application to take screenshots when run on either ChromeOS or Linux via ChromeOS.
