Managing Worker Details Offline

If you have a large number of Workers, it's easier to manage them offline using another application, such as Microsoft Excel. This section shows how to download Worker information, edit it, and upload it.

To download and modify Worker details

  1. On the Mechanical Turk Requester website, click the Manage tab and then click Workers.

    The Manage Workers page appears.

  2. On the Manage Workers page, click Download CSV.

    The Download Workers Results page appears.

  3. Click the word here to download the Worker data file.

    The Worker data downloads and opens in Microsoft Excel. The CURRENT-QualName column shows the Worker's current qualification score. If the cell is blank, you haven't assigned the Qualification Type to the Worker. The far, right column, CURRENT-BLOCK STATUS, shows the Worker's block status.

  4. To update the values, do one or more of the following:

    • Indicate which Qualification Type to assign a Worker by putting a Qualification score in the UPDATE-QualName column, for example, UPDATE-Good Tagger. Qualification scores must be 0 to 100, inclusive.

    • To revoke the Qualification Type, enter Revoke in the UPDATE column for your Qualification Type.

    • Block or unblock a worker by entering Block or Unblock in the UPDATE-BlockStatus column.

  5. Save the .csv and click Workers.

    The Manage Workers page appears.

  6. On the Manage Workers page, click Upload CSV.

    The Manage Workers Offline window appears.

  7. Click Browse to find the .csv file you saved, and then click Upload CSV.

    The Offline Processing window appears.

  8. Click Yes to confirm that you would like to save the changes for your Workers.
