  4. Troubleshooting

The sandbox is Toloka's testing environment. It lets you test the settings of your project as a performer and then transfer them to the Toloka production version and put them into use by real performers. This way you can avoid making mistakes and spending money if it turns out that your task is not functioning.

Restriction. Please note that you can only move project and pool settings. You can't move tasks and responses to them. A project's quality control settings aren't transferred either.

How to run a project in the sandbox

  1. 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 Toloka production version to register as a requester.

    If you have any problems, check out the details of registration and troubleshooting in the Registration section.

  2. Start and set up your project:

How to complete tasks

To complete your tasks in the sandbox:

  1. Register in the sandbox as a performer (see the instructions in the user documentation).
    Attention. Authorization via social networks is not allowed, so you need to register a new user in Yandex.
  2. Log in to the sandbox using the requester account.

  3. Open the Users page and click Add trusted users.

  4. Click Add user and enter the case-sensitive login name of the created performer.

    Only trusted users can access your tasks.

  5. Log in to the sandbox using the performer account and test your tasks. Make sure that the buttons and response validation are set up correctly, and assess how long it takes to complete the tasks. Make sure that the performer selection and quality control work.

How to move a task to the production version of Toloka

To move tasks from the sandbox to the production version:

  1. Link the sandbox and production version's accounts:

    1. Open the External services Integration tab in the production version on the profile page and copy the OAuth token.

    2. Open the same tab in the sandbox on the profile page and paste the copied token into the Production OAuth token field.

  2. Go to the project page in the sandbox and click Project actions → Export.

  3. Choose the pools to export and click Export.

    When you choose a pool with the main tasks, the training linked to it is exported automatically.

Troubleshooting

Why don't I see my task in the sandbox?

Make sure that:

  1. The pool is started.
  2. The trusted user is registered in the sandbox as a performer.
  3. Your performer fits the filters you set.
There is already an account in the production version of Toloka. Do I need to re-register in the sandbox?
To create a task, register in the sandbox as a customer, to complete your task, register as a performer.
I can't add a trusted user.
Possible reasons:
  • The trusted user isn't registered. Make sure you have added the performer's account as a trusted one.
  • The performer's account is authorized through social networks. Register a new user in Yandex.
