A team is a predefined group of annotators. When you define a TaskDefinition you can assign one or more teams to work on it. This ability is commonly used to acheive one (or both) of two goals
- You’d like to enforce access controls on groups of annotators (Team A can only work on dataset X )
- 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.
