Hi, I just saw that Upwork's time tracker does not support Chromebooks.
I do not own a PC or Mac so I'm stumped.
How do I keep track of my time in a way that complies with Upwork's terms of service?
Thank you so much, Elizabeth Rowe
You can manually input your hours if the client allows this. The caveat to that being that manually entered hours are not covered by any payment protections. That's really the main reason for using the tracker, as it takes screenshots from time to time and lets you annotate those to "prove" you were doing the work in case there's ever a dispute. It's not perfect (as it also relies on "activity levels", which can be misleading if you're doing a bunch of work away from your computer), but it is what it is.

It's only available for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. And so, to work on an hourly job on Chromebook, you'll need the client's approval to record time manually but keep in mind that Upwork doesn't guarantee payment for manually recorded time as it does not qualify for Hourly Payment Protection.
