Priority values

Upload priority values (Active Learning)

The priority value feature helps you determine the items that you need to annotate first to improve your model training. It's a key active learning feature that speeds up your annotation time.

To upload priority values:

  1. Go to Setup -> Settings -> General.
  2. Enable Priority scores. When enabled successfully. you'll see a message at the top of the page that says Changes saved.
  3. Go to Data, click Add, and select Upload Priority Scores.
  4. Drag and drop or choose a CSV file from your computer.

Who can upload priority scores?

Team Owners, Team Admins, and Project Admins (with permission) can upload priority scores.


When you successfully upload the priority scores, you'll see this message: All set! The priority scores have been uploaded successfully.


  • Items whose names don’t match the ones in the CSV file or have no priority scores will be skipped.
  • Items that don't have names or priority values won't be uploaded.

After the upload is complete, a priority value appears next to each item. You can sort your items by their priority values.

If the items have priority values and the Annotator requests tasks, they’ll receive the items sorted by priority value instead of by item name.
