Hi Cynthia,


To learn more about manual time and how to add manual hours check out this Guide. Please keep in mind that manual time is not protected under our Upwork Hourly Protection. If you have any additional questions let me know. Thank you.

Manual time has no payment protection, so you should only do it if you have good vibes from a client and it seems Upwork people don't really have good loser radar.
