Starting and stopping a task pool

In the interface
Via Toloka API

You can start a pool if:

  1. You uploaded tasks into it.

  2. You have enough money in your account to pay for the pool tasks, including the overlap.

To start the pool, click on the pool page or in the list of pools on the project page.

A started pool has the Labeling status. When all pool tasks are completed, the pool automatically switches to the Labeled status.

To stop assigning the pool tasks before all of them are completed, click on the pool page or in the list of pools on the project page.


New tasks can be uploaded to an open or closed pool.

What's next


Why doesn't the “Submit” button work in the task?
I created a project and a pool, but the Next button doesn't work or the preview shows a blank screen.
Tolokers report that they can't complete the tasks in my project. How can I find what the reason is?
What overlap should I set?
Can I change overlap after the pool is started?
With dynamic overlap, is it possible that the pool will close before the tasks for minimal overlap run out? The overlap increased, but the pool is closed, and I need to start it manually.
