Using the skill

You can use skills to filter and select Tolokers when assigning tasks, issuing bonuses, and sending out messages.

Selecting Tolokers for tasks

When setting up a pool, you can use skills in filters to:

  • Select Tolokers without a skill. To do this, use the =, and leave the value empty.
  • Select Tolokers with any skill value. Use the operator, and leave the value empty.
  • Select Tolokers who have a skill value greater than or less than the specified one.

For example, you can select only those Tolokers whose skill is more than 66 or is missing:

For global skills, the restrictions of the skill >80type are used to select “Tolokers who completed similar projects 80% better on average than other Tolokers”.
