Article summary

Every account is managed within the context of an Organizational entity, where you can collaborate on projects and share data and resources.

Organization Setup

An Organization is created, named, and linked to your account during the initial setup. If your account does not have an Organization, contact our support team.
You cannot create additional Organizations but can join existing ones. To join an existing Organization, request that one of its administrators add you as a member.

Sub-Orgs and Client Orgs

Your customers/partners can have their own organizations, so you can provide them with services and share projects.

  1. Go to the relevant platform (either or any designated environment), signup by themselves, go through the onboarding process, and create their organization.
  2. Go to the Team >> Add Labeling Company.
  3. Enter the company name and admin email ID, then click Add. The new company is added as an annotation manager in the project and will be able to provide services, add workforce from your organization, manage tasks, etc.

Active Organization (Active ORG)

As members of organizations, you have the context of 'Active organization'. You can view the currently active organization in the left-side menu.
Users with more than one organization membership can change their active organization by clicking on the Organization name dropdown list and searching for or selecting the required organization.

Ownership of new projects

New projects are automatically set to own by the currently active organization and charge them accordingly. Before you open a new project, ensure that you set the correct organization as the active organization.

Organization Projects

Select Organization Projects from the left-side navigation menu to view a summary of all projects in your current Active ORG. The following details are available on the Organization Projects page:

  • Name: It displays the name of the project.
  • Owning Org: It displays the name of the organization to which the project belongs.
  • Created by: It displays the email ID of the user who created the project.
  • Created on: It displays the project's creation timestamp.
Active task definition

Tasks that are not 100% complete are considered active and counted as part of active datasets and active projects containing such active tasks.

Claim Project Ownership

Organization Admins can set themselves as Project-owners in projects owned by the organization. For example, if an Org-Member creates a project, manages it, and then leaves the company without proper transfer of the project, the Org-Admin can become the Project-Owner without requesting permission.

To set an Organization admin as a project owner:

  1. Log in as the Organization Admin and ensure that your active-ORG is the correct one.
  2. Select the Organization Projects option from the left-side menu.
  3. Locate the relevant project from the list.
  4. Click the more icon, and select the Claim Ownership option.

Notification Channels

The Notification Channel feature in the Organization Projects page allows you to manage notifications. The Dataloop notification system manages predefined system alerts and sends notifications to the notification bell on the platform and their emails to notify users based on their subscription to notifications.

  • Only organization administrator or owner can enable or disable the channel.
  • All subscribed users across the organization's projects will receive notifications via these channels.
  • Notification Channels are part of the Organization. Once you are added to an organization, all the channels will be added to each existing project of the organization by default.
  • When a new project is created, your organization's channels will be added to the new project.

To manage user notification subscriptions, refer to Notification Subscriptions.

Email Channel

An email channel subscription allows you to receive all the platform notifications via email.

  • You will receive emails for each notification.

  • You will not receive more than one email notification for the same error within an hour.
    • Service or Pipeline notifications: You will receive notifications for each service ID, Pipeline ID, or error type.
    • Workflow notifications:
      • You will receive notifications for task ID or Assignment ID.
      • You will receive notifications for every new task or assignement.
  • If you deactivate the email channel, it does not stop the system's notifications. You will receive system notifications via email.

  1. A user from the service provider organization must be added to the client's project with the role of 'Project owner'.
