I have just completed my first assignment on upwork


I have just completed my first assignment on upwork and I am over the moon about the client's response and review, he also offered a new opportunity to me which I am very happy about. 


There is just one thorn in my side: I may come across as ditsy for which I apologise, but how does the work diary work?? I am trying to set up a designated start and end time but I am unable to set an end time. Please help! Also, if you have any tips that newbies should absolutely know about, please share it with me!

Download the Tracker.  Click it on when you start to work, click it off when you end.  If you take a break, turn it off and back on after the break. It will automatically record you work with random screen shots. It will also track you activity/ keystrokes. Be sure to use the Tracker and add meaningful memos regarding your work so that you will be paid, no matter what.   Take a look at https://support.upwork.com/hc/en-us/articles/211064098-Log-Time-with-Time-Tracker.
