Project settings

For each type of task (for example, text recognition, sorting images, and so on), you need to set up a project. The task settings are made in the project:

Create and configure your project in the sandbox, then move it to the production version of Toloka.

You can view a list of created projects on the Projects page. Statistics for task completion in the project are available on the project page.
