  1. More specificity on "Number of HITs Approved"

    Allow greater specificity for the variable "Number of HITs Approved". The jump between 100 and 500 is too large.

    • allow users to delete HITs and associated MTurk IDs

      Allow users to delete, not just archive, HITs and associated MTurk ID data. It would be useful for researchers to be able to "clean up" the HIT-related data that is stored in TurkPrime and delete study information when the study is closed.

      • ..provide better invoices

        The invoiced you provide cause problems for me to get my research reimbursed. I need clear succinct invoices that summarize all costs of one particular study with the following details:
        - Costs per participant (INCLUDING TurkPrime fees, my dashboard only summarizes Amazon's costs)
        - how I paid for them (my credit card transactions for both my MTurk and my TurkPrime account that was used for this study)
        - When participants completed the study exactly

        If not all of these points can be summarized in one page (e.g., the credit card transactions), any summary that is better, more succinct, and better…

          • Enable researchers to limit and monitor the number respondents who accepted HIT, instead of the number of submissions.

            For some experiments (for example,with groups) the researchers need to take into account also participants who did not complete the experiment (submitted).

            • add a feature also excluding participants who have seen half the survey but not completed it.

              As of now Turk Prime only excludes participants who complete the study but not those who did not complete the study but attempted bits of it. Technically, these participants have seen the study or survey protocol and if they attempt a similar study again, their responses would not be original and might be influenced by their participation before. Hence, it is important to exclude these participants.

                • Download CSV of workers in a grou?

                  Is there a way to download a CSV of worker IDs in a group? It looks like I can load them and page through them but a downloadable CSV would be more useful. thanks.

                  • Enable reposting HITs individually due to rejections

                    Enable reposting HITs when workers are rejected, just like MTurk has, i.e. posting only one more HIT per rejection. This should probably by default exclude all Worker IDs that have already come in for that HIT.

                    • create a dashboard of active workers per country

                      For those conducting cross-cultural research, it would be really useful if we could gauge how many active workers there are for each country. This way, we wouldn't have to waste time creating exploratory HITs to see if workers are available in a country we need to target.

                      • Show the title of the study and other info on "Review Workers" page.

                        With this feature you don't have to memorize workers from which study you're looking at. It can be confusing when you have multiple ongoing studies.

                        • Allow the adjustment of the no. of surveys/page on HIT DashBoard page.

                          The default for now is five, which is not many. It's really burdensome to go around the pages. The number of surveys/page should be customizable.

                          • Add a way for requesters to keep track of payment history

                            Sometimes it can be difficult to keep track of where my money is going, especially when giving bonuses since there are no permanent records of how many bonuses are sent out at a time or what the total payments was.

                              It's quite cumbersome having to download the CSV to view and modify approved HITs through TurkPrime.

                                Allow downloading of .csv files including Worker (or Turk Prime) ID number, and secret key. It doesn't have to be uploadable to accept or reject like on MTurk, but to be able to tell the difference between the set of Worker IDs you got data from vs. the set of Worker IDs you got HITs submitted for is important.

                                  • Add a feature to allow us to track emails to workers (e.g., a "sent" folder)

                                    Notifying workers of studies and then sending reminders can help reduce attrition in longitudinal studies - so glad you have this feature available! Adding a feature that records our messages (e.g., a sent folder) can help researchers better manage this process (e.g., send enough messages without harassing participants; determine how many contacts are necessary to get good attrition rates). We can of course keep track of our participant contacts separately from TurkPrime (or include ourselves as workers to receive and save the emails), but including this feature in the system would be efficient. Thanks!

                                    • Make it clear on the assinging bonuses webpage what the *total* cost will be (taking into account Mturk's 20% fee for bonuses)

                                      I have assigned bonuses twice and both times I had to email tech support to figure out how much it would cost since I did not know how much the Mturk fee was (or I forgot since it had been many months since I had done bonuses). If showing the total cost is too tricky, just a simple written reminder of the 20% fee would be very helpful.

                                        Turk Prime is great in keeping a history of HITs so you can limit people from participating in your hits after they've already done previous studies.

                                        What I'm realizing is that as a graduate student, I had my account associated with the school. But now that I am finishing, I will no longer have the same email. If you can find a way to transfer the account info to a different email so that the account history is not lost, that'd be great.

                                          In some cases, such as a HIT which is limited to a certain group of workers (for instance - ones who took a previous HIT), the low flow of participants makes the survey appear as unpopular to workers, and is shoved to the bottom of their lists, which further reduces participation rate. The known cure against this is to restart the survey every once in a while, so it jumps back to the top of peoples list. It would be nice if instead of getting in every couple of hours to restart the survey so it doesn't die out -…
