A team is a predefined group of annotators. When you define a Task Definition you can assign one or more teams to work on it. This ability is commonly used to achieve one (or both) of two goals

  1. You’d like to enforce access controls on groups of annotators (Team A can only work on dataset X )

  2. You’d like to allocate varying skills and expertise differently. Commonly, you’d assign a team of experts to label a test set and a larger team of laypeople to label the training set

By default, LightTag comes with a Team called “Everyone”. Assigning this team to a task will assign work to all of your annotators, including ones that join after the task was defined.
