Hi. I left Upwork two years ago for health reasons and now I am back recently. I have tried submitting proposals and every time I do, there's a window that pops up and says, "Thank you for completing your Upwork verification upload. Please allow 3-4 business days for your verification to be processed." I don't understand. I didn't submit and ID because in the first place I was not asked to. It just said, "Thank you..." and so on and it's been over 4 days since and I still can't apply for a job and submit proposal(s). There's no button to click either so I can upload my ID if that's what all Upwork is asking for. Can anyone help me please? Thank you.

I signed up roughly five days ago and wanted to know the status of my application. I read that I'd receive a notification after 24-48 hours, but I haven't yet. Thank you!
