How to create tasks for your project

You can find all necessary templates in our documentation „How to host your own iframe-task“.

Step 1 – Define framework conditions for the tasks

  1. Copy the code from our “Task Template” and save it as an XML document.
  2. Adjust the template to your needs. Following information have to be integrated:
    • The job type (e.g. web research, survey, etc.)
    • The job title
    • The briefing for the Clickworkers
    • The specifications for the targeted Clickworker group and the payment for each completed task.
      You can set following specifications as <value> here: Countries, Fee Amounts (in cents), Age (from to), Gender, Manual Review, and Acceptance or Rejection of Results (Yes/No)
    •  

      Please do not change anything in the <elements> section.
  3. Send the completed document to our API.

Step 2 – Create tasks

  1. Copy the code from our template “Tasks” and save it as an XML document.
  2. Paste in the link to the already created and sent (to our API) document .
  3. Create the task form for our Clickworkers on your server. Enter the link to the task form into the document as <content>.
  4. Send the completed document to our API. With each created document, you have created one job for one Clickworker. Create one “task document” for each job of your project.

The tasks created on your server will now be shown as a task integrated in an iframe in our Workplace and processed on your server.
Send us a PostBack as soon as a Clickworker has completed a job on your server. The Clickworker will then receive the specified payment.
