Submitted answers

Limit the number of tasks in the pool per performer to:
  • Get responses from as many performers as possible (for this purpose, set a low threshold, such as one task page).

  • Protect yourself from robots (for this purpose, the threshold should be higher, such as 10% of the pool's tasks).

Attention. All fields in this rule are required. If you don't fill in at least one of them, you won't be able to save the rule.

Rule settings




A condition for performing the action in the then field:
  • submitted assignments is the number of pages of task pages in the pool completed by the performer.


Action to perform for the condition:

  • Assign skill value — Assign a fixed value to the skill.

  • accept user's answers — Requires the non-automatic acceptance option to be set.

    Useful if the performer completes most tasks well. Example: the toloker completed more than 80% of the tasks correctly and you are satisfied with this result. The rule will work automatically — all responses in the pool will be accepted.

  • decline user's answers — Requires the non-automatic acceptance option to be set.

    Useful if you need several responses from the performer to evaluate the quality of the results. Example: after ten responses, it became clear that the performer completes tasks poorly. The configured action will work — all responses in the pool will be rejected.

  • Suspend — Suspend the performer's access to the pool for the specified number of days. Only the requester can view the reason for the ban.

  • Ban — Block access to the project or all requester's projects for the specified number of days. Only the requester can view the reason for the ban.

    If access to tasks is blocked temporarily (for example, for 7 days), the history of the performer's responses is not saved after the ban is lifted. The skill value is based on new responses.

Rule example

Suspending the performer in the pool for exceeding response limit

If the performer completes more than 20 task pages, they can no longer access the pool and can't complete your tasks.


Should I create a skill for every pool?

It is better to use one skill in a project. You can choose the way to calculate the skill:

  • Calculate the skill for each pool separately. The current skill value is the value of the skill in the pool the user completed last. This option is convenient if:

    • The pools are intended for different groups of performers (for example, there are filters by city or country).

    • Pools are started one by one and you don't want to take into account the responses in the previous pools to calculate the skill in the current pool.

    This calculation method is used by default when adding a quality control rule to a pool. For the control tasks block, leave the Recent values to use field empty.

  • Calculate skill based on all tasks in a project This option is good if the pools are small and you don't need to have skill calculated for each pool.

    This option is available only for skills on control tasks. To use it, fill in the Recent values to use field in quality control rules in pools.

Can I use a skill beyond a particular pool or project and apply it to other projects as well?

Yes, of course — you can use the same skill for different projects. But most often, a skill is intended for a specific project. If the performer completes a certain task well, this doesn't mean that they will complete other ones successfully. Another disadvantage is that if you filter by skills that were set long ago, you will artificially limit the number of available performers.
