Request documents

Request documents

To request documents, click Request tasks in Data.

📘

Only Annotators and QAs can request documents. They'll be automatically assigned up to the number of documents that's set in Request item number in Settings. The minimum number is 1 and the maximum number is 50.

🚧

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.

Received document status

  • Annotators receive documents with the following statuses: Not started, In progress, and Returned.
  • QAs receive documents with the Quality check status.

Document receiving order

Annotators and QAs receive requested documents in one of the following orders:

Condition

Document receiving order

If there's a folder

Annotators and QAs will first receive documents from the folder, then they'll receive the documents from the project’s root (if available) in ascending alphabetical order.

If there are multiple folders

Annotators and QAs will first receive documents from the folders, then they'll receive the documents from the project’s root (if available) in ascending alphabetical order.

If there is no folder

Annotators and QAs will receive documents from the project’s root in ascending alphabetical order.

If the Annotator or QA has folders assigned to them

The Annotator or QA will first receive the documents from the assigned folders, then they'll receive documents from the other folders and the project’s root.

If the number of documents available in the first folder is smaller than the number of Request item number in Settings

Annotators and QAs will receive the remaining documents from the next folder.

Suppose a project has a Request item number of 50 and contains the following items:

  • Folder A: 40 documents
  • Folder B: 30 documents

When the Annotator or QA request documents, they'll receive 40 documents from Folder A and then 10 documents from Folder B.

❗️

  • Annotators and QAs have to finish working on the assigned documents to be able to request more documents.
  • An Annotator can't receive documents from folders assigned to other Annotators.
  • A QA can't receive documents from folders assigned to other QAs.
