The Weekly Summary is a week-by-week breakdown of your spending. It includes all payments on hourly contracts, escrow deposits for fixed-price contracts and projects, and other manual payments. It is broken down into three sections: Weekly Summary, Timesheet, and Fixed-Price and Other Payments.



All times are based on UTC so that payments and reports are consistent.

The Weekly Summary
You can hover over the pie chart to check the spend on individual contracts or activities.


The Weekly Summary overview panel displays spend by contract type. Time logged using the Upwork Desktop App is listed under Timesheet, while time added manually by your freelancers can be seen under Manual time. Escrow deposits, weekly salary, bonuses, and other manual payments will be listed under Fixed-price and other.


The timesheet panel

The Timesheet panel displays the day-by-day breakdown for the time your freelancer logged the previous week. A yellow triangle next to the timestamp indicates that your freelancer added manual time on that day. You can select the timestamp to review your freelancer's work diary.


The Fixed-Price panel

The Fixed-price and other panel displays escrow deposits on fixed-price contracts as well as other manual payments, such as a one-time contract bonus or recurring weekly salary.
