Archiving a pool

A pool with the “Archived” status can't be started or edited and isn't available for the task review.

By default, archived pools are not visible in the list of project pools. To view them:
  1. Open the project page.
  2. In the Pools tab, select Archived.
The pool is automatically archived if none of the following actions is performed in the pool for a month:
  • Editing.
  • Uploading tasks.
  • Changing status.
  • Completing a task.
  • Cloning via the Toloka API.
To archive a pool, click  → Archive at the top of the pool page, or in the list of pools on the project page.
Note. To archive the training pool, first archive all the main pools which it is linked to.

Troubleshooting

Can I delete a pool?

You can't completely delete a pool, but you can archive it. The system won't delete my pools automatically.

How long is the pool stored?

If there is no activity in the pool for a month, it is archived. You can't run such a pool, but you can clone it or download the labeled data from it.

Where are my pools that were closed a few months ago stored?

Inactive pools are archived after one month. To see them, select Archived in the Pools tab.

How do I find out the pool archiving parameters?

To find out the archiving date, get a list of operations with the POOL.ARCHIVE type. The response will contain the pool number and the archiving date. You can't get the method used to archive the pool via the API.

If less than a month passed between the activity in the pool and its archiving, you can assume that the pool was archived manually, and if it's been one month or more, then it was archived automatically.

How do I accept tasks from the archived pool or when the performer wrote to me later than the allowed deadline?

Simply give the performer a separate reward without changing the task status. You can't change the task status in the pool in this case.
