Editing projects

Once you have created a project, you can edit its name and add shape and scene attributes, if desired.

To edit a project:

  • In the My projects table, click the three-dots menu in the row for a project and click Edit.

Renaming a project

If you change your mind about the name of your project, you can rename it. To do so:

  1. In the Project Name section, enter a new name.
  2. Click Save at the bottom of the page.

Adding shape and scene attributes

Two different types of attributes can be added to collect additional information about the asset that is being annotated.

  • Shape attributes: Describe the characteristics of a specific shape in the workspace. These attributes are shown in a side panel that appears when you click on a particular shape in the annotation workspace.
  • Scene attributes: Describe the characteristics of the entire scene in the workspace. These attributes are shown underneath the annotation workspace.

To add a shape or scene attribute:

  1. Depending on whether you are adding a shape or scene attribute, click Add [shape/scene] attribute.

  2. In the Attribute name field, enter the name for the attribute. It will appear as a heading to annotators.

  3. In the Attribute input type field, select the type of field that annotators will use to provide the attribute information. The following options are available:



    For more information on attributes and outputs, check out the detailed Shape & Scene Outputs article, available right in the knowledge base.

    • Text area
    • Text field
    • Checkboxes
    • Dropdown
    • Radio buttons
    • Multi-level menus
  4. To make the attribute mandatory and ensure that a response is provided, check the Required box. Without this checkbox selected, the response can be left blank when the work is submitted.

  5. Depending on which input type you chose, the New attribute field may appear below. Enter an option that you want to make available as a choice and then click Add (or press Enter). Repeat until you have added all the desired options.

  1. Click Save at the bottom of the page.

Managing Workflows

Switching from the Taxonomy tab to the Settings tab, you'll be able to modify the steps taken throughout your project's annotation cycle.

Two different types of steps are available, depending on whether the step will be used to perform new annotation work, or review annotations that have already been completed.



Each project will start with a single step "A", marked as an annotation step. The step type cannot be modified, even if you're using pre-annotated data.

Creating new steps

To create a new project step:

  1. Click on "Create new step"

  2. Fill out the new step dropdown fields that appear:

    • Name of the step
    • Type which can be Production or Review
      - Production steps are for new annotation work to be conducted
      - Review steps are for reviewing existing annotation work. If Review is selected as the Type then a new field will appear, named Review percent. The Review percent field will determine the percentage of submitted tasks from prior production steps that will be selected for review.
    • Optional Instructions which can help provide workers more details regarding the specific actions needed in a given step. Once defined, you can select "Show instructions in workspace" to ensure your agents can view them on demand.

  1. Click on Save once you've finished adding the step.



You can only have two steps on your project - one Production step and one Review step, by default.

Deleting steps

Deleting steps from your project settings is easy – beside your added step will be a trash can icon . Clicking on the icon will remove the step, allowing you to re-add or recreate it.



Deleting the step will affect the workload of any annotators currently reviewing annotations, as those tasks will cease to exist once the step is removed.
