The title says it all. Before Upwork was Elance, which I used. I never ever experienced downtime messages like this. I just started in May and I am seeing maintenance messages popping up continually every week.
A great data migration? What is it? Is Upwork doing something wrong if maintenance messages are happening continually? I feel Upwork is not keeping their customers (freelancers) in the loop of what is the hold up. Why the maintenance. A good company gives transparency.
Our Engineering team conducts regular maintenance each week in order to ensure the system is fully functional and all the features and processes updated. You can keep track by subscribing to our status blog and checking the Announcements section of the Community.
