Screenshot Tool

A screenshot tool is available via the Upwork app in every Upwork Messages chat room (screenshots not yet available via the web).

  1. Click the screenshot icon at the right of compose message box.
  2. Choose Selection to crop the screenshot with crosshairs or Full Screen to snap everything currently visible on your monitor.
  3. Annotate if desired, then upload to the current chat room or create a shareable link.

Once taken, you can annotate the picture with:

  • Boxes
  • Circles
  • Arrows
  • Lines
  • Freeform Pencil Drawing
  • Text
  • Blur

To provide feedback on the screenshot tool, click on “leave feedback” in the top left of the screenshot screen while in a snapshot.

Current limitations:

  • You can only crop the picture via the Selection option on capture
  • You can undo annotations but not edit them
  • Only available via the Upwork desktop app; not available in Messages on the web or mobile

Incident Status

Our records show your Upwork account is not active.

This might be due to no account activity (earnings, payments, contracts, etc.) or because we had to suspend it. When we suspend an account we send an email explaining the reason and whether or not you can take steps to reverse the suspension. Please review that email for more details.

For general questions, you can visit our Community or review our Terms of Service.

We’ll start a video chat with you. Please make sure you use a desktop device with a camera to continue the process. Also, allow Upwork temporary use of your camera and microphone. You may disable this access after the chat session.

If all of our agents are busy when you attempt to chat, please hold, and one of our agents will be with you shortly.
