Assigning Labels to Users
We provide a function to assign users per label for a systematic labeling project workflow. Owner/Admin/Manager-level users can assign labels or request reviews to lower-level users.

Assigning Labels to Users

An Owner, Admin and Manager-level users 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 in 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.

Request Review

Owner, Admin and Manager-level users can request label review to lower-level users.
  1. 1.
    Select the labels to request on the Labels tab of the Project page and click Request Review button on the top right toolbar.
2. Select the member to request.
3. Select the number of labels to request and the distribution method.
  • Label Count: You can adjust the number of labels to request.
  • Distribution Method
    • Equal: You can assign the same number of labels to each member.

When you have completed the label task in the fullscreen Label Mode/Review Mode, an alert menu asking whether you want more labels assigned will be displayed. You can self assign more labels by clicking Assign New Label or Assign Labels To Review button.
