Formula:,

where:

is the number of task pages remaining uncompleted or those completed with insufficient overlap.

is the average time per task page. Calculated based on the amount of time since the pool opened and the number of task pages completed.

Active users with access to pool

The number of performers selected for the pool with filters. The number includes only performers who viewed and completed tasks in Yandex.Toloka in the last hour.

Interested in pool

The number of performers who started at least one task page.

Submitted in pool

The number of performers who completed at least one task page.

Submitted assignments per 1 user

The average number of task pages per performer.

Expired tasks

The number of expired task pages. Includes the pages that performers failed to complete on time or decided to skip. You specify the time allotted for a task page when setting up a pool.

When the performer decides not to do the task (clicks Exit), the task gets the expired status. In this case, the performer can return to the task again, unless it was completed by someone else or the requester deleted it from the pool.

Performers might have skipped the task page, because:

  • Tasks are too complex.
  • There are too many tasks on the page.
  • Tasks don't work and performers can't submit the assignments.
  • Performers couldn't understand the instructions and task interface.
  • Performers are trying to cheat.

If you have a lot of expired task pages in your pool, we recommend that you read ourTips for designing tasks.

Skipped tasks

The number of task pages skipped by performers. Includes the pages that the performers decided to skip and moved on to the next tasks.

When the performer clicks Skip, the task gets the skipped status. In this case, the performer can no longer return to the task.

If you have a lot of skipped task pages in your pool, we recommend that you read our Tips for designing tasks and set up the skipped assignments rule.

Troubleshooting

Why has the speed of pool completion dropped?
Possible reasons:
  • You've stopped the main pool. This could limit the number of performers with access to the pool. Start the training pool again. There will be more performers who can access the tasks.

  • The filters you set are too strict. For example, a strong restriction on a certain skill that most users don't have.
  • Too many users are banned. Ease the quality control rules.
How can I speed up the pool completion?
I launched a task with a deadline of 20 minutes, but there are expired tasks in the pool after just 5 minutes. How is this possible?

Those are tasks that performers exited from. Such tasks get the expired status.

Why is the maximum number of completed tasks in the progress bar less than the total number of uploaded tasks?

The progress bar shows the number of task pages including the overlap. If the overlap is greater than one, the number of task pages is different from the total number of tasks.
