can I have someone check mine as well I am having the same issue. I actually got the approval via email but the ! with the "under review" is still showing so I can't submit proposals.
When I click on any job a notice at the top says: Your profile is still in draft form. You must create your profile and submit it for review before you can submit a proposal.
I've already created a profile and submitted for review. When I logged in today I saw a notice that said Welcome to UpWork so I assumed my profile was approved but I'm still unable to apply to anything. Am I doing something wrong? Do I need to add more to my profile? It's pretty bare bones right now. Really confused at this point.
I have the same problem... I have filled in all the information, sent several proposals but I can't do it anymore. The message says "Your profile is still in draft form..."
I'm having the exact same issue with my profile being in draft mode.
I also cannot add my Twitter contact information... the message says "this almost never happens, click here for support". I clicked the link, and found nothing useful.
Also, it's nearly impossible to crop/re-size images to make them fit perfectly in the Portfolio section. I am a book author, so my cover images tend to be rectangular, not square.
I've been a member of Upwork for approximately 24 hours, and I've already encountered more errors and technical glitches than I have on other similar sites... maybe you guys can post a job listing on Upwork and find somebody to fix it?
Sorry for the snark, but I am incredibly frustrated.
I have a strange notification : "Your profile is still in draft form. You must create your profile and submit it for review before you can submit a proposal."
Because of that, I can't send a proposal bid to the jobs.
What can I do?
Hi Hemwattie, Tatiana, Alexander and Marlin,
We currently have issues with the approval process for new profiles and will reach out to you directly with more information.
Sorry about the inconvenience.
