In some cases, the Upwork Team App for Mac (more specifically the "Upwork Helper" process) will develop excessive CPU usage. If this occurs:

  1. First, confirm you are running the latest version of the app. In most cases, upgrading will resolve the issue.
  2. If the issue persists, quit the Upwork Team App, open the Terminal on your Mac, and then run this command:
    open Upwork.app --args --enable-gpu
  3. You may need to repeat step 2 every time you open the app until the next time the app updates. When it asks to update, be sure to let it.
