Creating a project

If you already have a project and you want to create an identical one, clone the existing project. If not, create a new project.

New project

The project defines what the task will look like for a performer. To get better results, make tasks as simple as possible and divide complex tasks into several projects.

Tip. You can first create and test your project for free in the sandboxand then move it to the Yandex.Toloka production version.

To create a project, follow the instructions:

  1. Click the Create project button on the Projects page.

  2. Choose a template. The template contains pre-configured input and output data fields and the task interface, which you can edit.

    If there is no suitable template, choose an empty template.

  3. Enter Project name and Description. Performers will see this in the task list.

  4. Write instructions for the task for performers.

  5. Add fields for input and output data in the Specifications block.

  6. In the Task issue field, specify how the performer should choose the tasks:

    Random

    Use this method for regular task pools that performers will see as a list on the Yandex.Toloka home page.

    When the performer chooses the pool (for the performer, it is called Task), task pages are issued to the performer automatically. They can't choose a specific task from your pool, but they can skip the task if it does not suit them. You can filter out such performers using quality control rules.

    Map (for field surveys)

    Use this method for pools with walking (field) tasks that performers choose on the map. These tasks are available to performers only from mobile devices.

    For this, specify how to fill in the Title and Description fields. Performers will see them when viewing points on the map before they choose a task.

    To add input data fields, use JavaScript.

    Example of filling in the fields

    Name {{inputParams["name"]}}

    Description {{inputParams['address-ru']}}| Opening hours: {{inputParams[office-time'].label || '—'}}

  7. Describe the task interface.

    To see how the task will look, click Preview.

  8. Save the project.

After creating the project, add a task pool to it. You can also set up quality control in the project.

Cloning a project

You can view the list of created projects on the Projects page. Open the project page to view the list of pools, project rating, and project statistics.

To clone a project, click in the list of projects or Project actions → Clone on the project page.

Attention. Quality control in the project is not cloned.

If you need to change the project settings, open edit mode.
