Bettina, tracking time on a fixed rate job is certainly "possible", but there is no protection to be gained by doing so, the hours don't "count" and are not billed or do anything whatsoever at all. You're obviously free to track time for your own reasons, but don't think that doing so has any meaning as far as Upwork is concerned.


To track time, you first have to download the tracker, if you haven't already.


Then open the tracker, click on the little ""gear" symbol on the bottom left, choose advanced and switch on the ability to track tiime for fixed rate contracts.


Just remember that doing so is purely for your own purposes.
