Define Your Own Crowd with the Building of Teams

October 10, 2016

building crowd teams

In our marketplace you can build any number of Clickworker teams for yourself, which can then either be chosen or excluded during the job creation process.

Usage of Expert Teams
Logically a team of Clickworkers can be put together whose previous work you have been especially pleased with. This allows you to direct the work upcoming jobs specifically to the Clickworkers on your expert team. In this way you can better guide the results and help align them with your expectations.

Usage of Blocklists
On the other hand a team of Clickworkers can be assembled that you wish to exclude from future tasks, and thereby define as a blocklist. This is especially useful when you personally weren’t as pleased with the results, for example their text style, produced by these Clickworkers. But it also makes sense to create a blocklist of Clickworkers for subsequent jobs like online surveys, to prevent the same workers from taking part in the survey again.

In the following, we explain step by step to you how the building of teams works.

clickworker Survey Service – New Features and Integrated Survey Tool

September 12, 2016

Survey Tool

At the beginning of the year we developed a new self-service “Surveys” offering for you. Since then we have received a lot of positive responses, and are pleased with the high usage rate of the service. We also received some customer requests regarding an even faster, as well as more individual execution of your surveys. We took these to heart and now, together with some ideas of our own, have implemented an advanced version of the “Surveys” service.

Beginning immediately you can …

 

  • Create your online survey with us and obtain Clickworkers as participants.
    For this purpose a survey tool integrated into the job process is at your disposal.
    A survey can be comfortably created per drag and drop with the survey tool.
  •  

  • Determine your target group/survey participants not only based on age, gender and country for each assignment, but instead set a predefined team as the participant group.
    The teams can be individually defined and named in your customer account under the menu option “Teams”.
  •  

  • Create a block list with participants who should not take part in your online survey.
    This function can be very helpful especially if you have already commissioned and completed a survey, and want to prevent the same Clickworkers from taking part in the new survey.
With the new possibility ’to create the online survey directly with us’, three survey service options are now available for you and can be choosed in the order form.

The crowdsourcing code of conduct – for fair cooperation

July 21, 2015

Crowdsourcing

Together with the German Crowdsourcing Association and the crowdsourcing providers Testbirds and Streetspotr, we have developed a Code of Conduct that will regulate cooperation between service crowdworkers, providers and customers. The aim is to establish generally applicable guidelines in addition to legislation in order to turn crowdworking as a new form of work into a win-win situation for all parties involved.

    The code of conduct includes basic principles
  • with regard to the seriousness of the tasks offered,
  • with regard to informing the crowdworker about the legal situation,
  • regarding fair payment for the crowd,
  • regarding crowd motivation,
  • regarding task definition and time management,
  • regarding freedom and flexibility in the completion of tasks,
  • regarding support for the crowdworker,
  • regarding communication,
  • regarding work environment as well as
  • data privacy and sphere of privacy.
The code of conduct can be signed by interested companies and will be continually developed. The basic principles can be read online at www.crowdsourcing-code.com.
