I'm working on my profile and cannot get the categories to save.
I have attached an image. It says "You must select at least one type of work".
I have tried it in two different browsers, cleared cookies and cache and it's still not working.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Sadly, just like so many others, my categories (under "Settings > Profile Settings > Categories") won't save, please see the screenshot attached.
Note I tried 3 browsers (Vivaldi, Chrome, Firefox), all on windows 10, always with the same result.
I heard the solution was to post a request here in order to get a support ticket running, so here I am. Thank you!

I tried with different browsers and cleared the cache and cookies. Still not working. Need help. Thanks

Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked this for you and it seems like I can't replicate the issue. Can you please try doing this in any of these browsers and let us know if the issue persists?
May 16, 2022 08:26:30 AM by Stefania Claudia J
I've tried the other browsers and it still doesn't work. Is there anything else I can try?
May 16, 2022 09:42:30 AM by Nikola S
Thank you for following up. Could you please share a screenshot of the error from your end so that we can assist you further? Please clarify if you see any error message when you try to save the category.

I was told it would be escalated to the Technical Support Team, but it still isn't fixed. VERY FRUSTRATING!
Jan 23, 2022 01:36:23 AM by Pradeep H
Thank you for your message. One of our team members has already reached out to you via ticket to assist you further.
Jan 23, 2022 07:03:59 AM by John A
You are correct Pradeep, but that was over a week ago. I would think that something like users not being able to add categories would have been fixed within a day or two, not linger for over a week.
Jan 23, 2022 09:35:18 AM by Milen M
I'm not sure if they have fixed the issue, but I did make it work by changing the Categories from the main menu bottom right, instead Profile settings. I'm attaching a screenshot.
I hope that work for you too!
Jan 23, 2022 11:54:14 AM by John A
Awesome Milen! It worked - THANKS!
I appreciate you following you following up with a fix!

Hi Yurii and Angela,
Thank you for reaching out to us. I checked but I could not replicate the issue you experience. Could you please share a screenshot from your end so that we can assist you further?
Mar 26, 2022 01:16:53 PM by Yurii A
This is my screenshot. In Profile settings I chose Categories, select just one Mobile development, click Save and get this validation error on any browsers and devices. Even in mobile version of Upwork. I see that this problem discussed at least since 2019 year. I think it's some validation error in Upwork code. As you see I'm not alone and this error ocure not only now. Please, fix it for us.

Click save but ask me to add at least 1 category (I already did)
Apr 5, 2022 10:59:29 PM by Taras I
I can't save category selection to profile settings.
I have already tried both from a smartphone and different browsers. And cleared cookies.
Everywhere pops up You must select at least one type of work.
What should I do?

Hi Nikola, I am also having this problem trying to create and save my profile
Apr 28, 2022 01:00:43 AM by Pradeep H
Thank you for your message. Did you try loading your Upwork profile on another browser? You can also try clearing your browser cookies and cache to check if that helps.
Apr 29, 2022 02:42:25 PM by Alex L
It's not working for me.
"You must select at least one type of work."
