Assigning Labels to Users

Assigning Labels to Users

An Owner, Admin and Manager user can assign labels to other users, for example, to distribute data labeling or reviewing tasks. In this sense, an assignee is a user that is assigned to perform certain tasks on one or more labels.

Owner and Admin users can access all labels across all projects whereas Manager users can view projects and edit labels they are invited to. Labeler users can only view and work on labels that are specifically assigned to them. (See User Roles and Permissions for more information).

  1. To assign labels to users, click the ‘Assign’ button located on the upper-right corner after you select the labels to assign. If you are assigning labels that have “submitted” or “skipped” status, the labels’ status will switch to “in progress”.

2. Select the user(s) to whom you will assign labels.

3. Select the number of labels, assignment order, and the distribution type.

  • Label Count Select the number of labels to distribute.

  • Assignment Order Select the order of the assignment from the following: last updated, difficulty, status, and data key (name).

  • Distribution

    • Equal: Assign the same number of labels to each member.

    • Proportional: Assign until each member has the same total number of labels.

4. After checking the distribution chart, click the APPLY button at the bottom to distribute labels in equal numbers to selected assignees.

❗ When assigning labels that are already submitted or assigned, you'll be prompted with an alert and a quick link to filter unassigned labels.

Self-Assigning Labels

A user may also choose to self-assign themselves more labels through the Annotation App (i.e. when they are finished with all assigned labels). They may click on the right side where it says Assign me a new label, and an unassigned label will automatically be assigned after the Worker who clicks on it.

Please refer to the Annotation App to see a further visualization of this.
