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.

Manual archiving

In the interface
Via Toloka API

To archive a pool, click Drop-down button → Archive at the top of the pool page, or in the list of pools on the project page.


To archive the training pool, first archive all the main pools to which it is linked.
