Since tasks can be assigned to individual linguists or to a team, there must be a way to designate which linguist is working on each task.
If you are working as part of a team, be sure to check out a task. this reserves the task to you and ensures that linguists will not be able to work on it.
Check-Out. To check out a task, go to a task and click the More icon and select a Check Out option.
Check-In. If you are unable to complete a task (e.g. because of illness), check the task back in, allowing other linguists to work on it. To check a task back in, go to a task and click the More icon. Then select Check-In.
