It's my first time doing a hourly job. Can someone tell me how that software that UpWork provides for tracking hourly jobs work? How can I insert the number of hours I worked on the site to let the client know?

Hi Matteo,


You need Upwork App to track the time you spend working on your hourly contract. The App takes regular snapshots of your screen and uploads them to your Work Diary. The client can review the Work Diary and is billed for the time you log.


Check out this help article for more details and further instructions for using Upwork App.

Just adding a bit here: if the client allows it, you can ask to have your manual time added and billed.

Sometimes you may require to do some off-time work that cannot be tracked using the app - depending on what your tasks are.
