Reviewing task responses

If you set post acceptance in the pool settings, you need to check the performers' responses within the time limit set in the Deadline field. Performers may challenge a rejected response by submitting an appeal.

You can review assignments online or upload review results in a TSV file.

To accept or reject one task:

  1. Click the Review assignments button on the pool page.

  2. Choose an assignment.

    If responses include files uploaded by the performers, click the Actions → Download attachments button to download them. To download all files in submitted assignments in a ZIP archive, click Download results → Download attachments on the assignments review page.

  3. Review the assignment, then click Accept or Decline. For rejected assignments, enter a comment (explain why you declined it).

To accept or reject multiple assignments at once, select the tasks in the list and click Accept or Decline.


Within 7 days after the review, the performer can challenge the result by filing an appeal. To do this, the user sends a message with the result ID (assignment_id) in the subject line and explains why the task should be accepted.

If a task was mistakenly rejected, accept it. Review all appeals and respond within 14 days.
