    2. Filter by Job State
      • All Jobs, Not Launched, Running, Paused, Canceled, Finished, and In Progress.
    3. Filter by Project
      • Jobs can be organized into “Projects” to help organization and cost reporting  
    4. Bulk add to Tag and Project (checkbox)
      • A tag should be used to capture any metadata about jobs. For example, you may want to tag "Production", or "Testing" for jobs within one or more projects. Note that Appen does not support reporting by tag.

Appen generates reports for any archived job; the report types are below:

  • Full report
  • Aggregated report
  • Test Questions report
  • JSON report
  • Source report
  • Contributor report

You can obtain access to any report by contacting support at with the job ID.

When a job is archived, CML, instructions, and settings are preserved. To order more rows, you can copy the archived job without rows, upload data and launch the new job.
