The Sandbox is a testing environment for Yandex.Toloka. This is where you can test your project settings as a performer before moving the project to the production version of Yandex.Toloka and posting tasks for real performers. This helps you avoid making mistakes and spending money on a task that isn't working right.
How to run a project in the sandbox
Register in the sandbox as a requester. To do this, follow the link.Tip. To avoid confusion, use the Yandex account that you used in the Yandex.Toloka production version to register as a requester.
How to complete tasks
To complete your tasks in the sandbox:
Log in to the sandbox using the requester account.
Open the Users page and click Add trusted users.
Click Add user and enter the case-sensitive login name of the created performer.
Only trusted users can access your tasks.
The number of trusted performers required for testing depends on the overlap settings.
To test your project in the Sandbox, set overlap 1. If you increase the overlap, you will need to register more performers and add trusted user accounts.
When exporting a project to the main Yandex.Toloka version you can specify the necessary overlap, in accordance with your project goals.
How to move a task to the production version of Yandex.Toloka
To move tasks from the sandbox to the production version:
Go to the project page in the sandbox and click.
Choose the pools to export and click Export.
If to the pool has linked training, it is exported automatically.
- The user isn't registered in the sandbox. The account you registered in the Yandex.Toloka production version doesn't suit. Make sure you have specified the correct performer's account as a trusted one.
- The performer's account is authorized through social networks. Register a new user in Yandex.
Overlap defines how many performers complete the same pool task.
The best overlap is an overlap that provides satisfying quality of results. For most tasks that are not reviewed, overlap from “3” to “5” is enough. If the tasks are simple, overlap of “3” is likely to be enough. For tasks that are reviewed, set overlap to “1”.
Yes. Open edit mode for the pool and set a new overlap value. You don't need to restart the pool. Updating the settings is usually fast, but if there are many tasks, it may take several minutes.
