Contract Room


The contract room is a new view that replaces the old contract details page with everything you need to collaborate on contracts with your freelancers all in one place.

It's accessible through the Jobs and Jobs > Contracts pages by clicking the name of a contract. The first time you'll see a tour to help familiarize you with the new view. This new feature is being rolled out to all clients over the course of a few weeks. If you don't have it yet, you will soon.

In the contract room you can:

  • Search and send messages and files, or start a video/audio chat
  • Access the original job post and proposals
  • Make payments and review your billing history and invoices for that contract
  • Review, approve, and create new milestones (for fixed-price contract)
  • Check your freelancer's Work Diary and timesheets (for hourly contracts)
  • Raise rates, adjust weekly limits, allow/disallow manual time, and manage activity codes (for hourly contracts)

Upwork Status

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.
