Connect with Mturk account information on prior HITS and Worker IDs to facilitate exclusion
Currently, it is possible to exclude all workers who took a particular HIT by excluding that entire HIT ID, as long as the HIT was launched via TurkPrime. As many researchers flocking to TurkPrime have been using MTurk for years, it would be a huge benefit to be able to exclude HIT IDs retroactively, i.e., to be able to exclude an entire HIT that was originally launched via MTurk. Otherwise researchers are basically losing the capacity to capitalize on their cumulative use of Mturk when transferring to Turkprime.
This feature request has been approved and work will commence on it shortly.
Thank you for your feedback and suggestions!
For now, you can create reusable worker groups and exclude and include lists by specifying the WorkerId’s that you wish to either exclude or target for your survey. You can copy the WorkerId’s from the MTurk generated CSV of any of your previous HITs
I agree, this would drastically reduce the barrier to entry and make TurkPrime a lot more attractive. I've been putting off joining because it seems like I need to do a big switch over all at once.
