Hello,

 

  1. I would like to know if my profile has been aprroved....?
  2. Can you not have a status marker in the profile information so new users know whether or not they have been approved?

Thx,

Melissa

Hi, I've created an upwork account 3 days before, and when I try to check if it's approved, it says "If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile you’ll use to market your freelance business to clients (you can edit it after approval)." in the "Create your profile" page. I cannot access upwork features, what shall I do?

Hi Ignas,

You will need to add your City in your address before you`re able to submit your application for a review. Once you`re ready go to the bottom of the page and click on the Review Application button.

If your profile is approved, it will become the public profile you’ll use to market your freelance business to clients (you can edit it after approval).I amseeing this message from previous 5 days . what should i do now?Why it is taking too much time to review profile . 

Hi Mlan, 

 

I checked your account and I can see that you are yet to submit your profile for review. You need to click the review application button to make sure you did not miss any section of the profile creation process. Any portion that is highlighted in red needs to be filled-in. Please review your application and update the missing fields to be able to submit your profile for review. In this case, please update the city field and resubmit your profile for review. 

 

Once you submit your profile, it takes at least 24 to 48-hours for the process to complete and you will be notified via email about your account.

My UpWork account is linked to my work account but I'm leaving this job and need it to link to my personal account. Every time I go to try and edit anything it just takes me to the profile and I can edit that and click 'review profile' but there are no other options.

Hi, I am a WordPress developer. 

I really want to get my profile approved and start working on Upwork. 

But I got this message below today. Could you please help me fix the issues that I am having on my profile.?

 

Thank you

 

 

Your profile requires changes

We've hidden your profile because it does not meet the following Upwork guidelines. You will not be able to submit proposals until these issues are fixed. Check these support messages for more details.

Please edit your profile and then resubmit for review.' I tried several times with some changes of my skill but I can't submit.

Please help me.

Thanks.
