Outsource Labeling Workforce

Work hand-in-hand with the world's best labelers right inside your Labelbox project.

How it works

  1. Create a new Labelbox project or start from an existing project
  2. Go to Settings>Collaborators>Outsource
  3. Enter an Outsource Firm Provider ID in the field and click Add
  4. The project is now connected to your labeling workforce

The outsource function is available for use with Labelbox managed workforce partners. We've worked with a lot of managed workforce companies, and these are the ones that get the best reviews from the Labelbox community.

User Limit with Outsourcing

An outsourced annotation team does not count towards your Labelbox member limit.

Instructions for Labelbox Customers

To add an outsource labeling team navigate to your project > Settings > Collaborators.

Select "Outsource" then enter the Outsource Firm Provider ID (Provided by the labeling firm), then Add.

This will give access to the labeling team to manage your project and add their labelers. The project will appear in their account as a shared project.

They will only have access to do the following:

  • Manage their own members in your shared project. Not your Members
  • Label and review
  • Delete & re-enqueue labeled data
  • View project progress, basic metrics, and labeler performance

Instructions for Managed Workforce Partners

Connecting a Project

Share your Provider ID with the Labelbox customer and they will be able to connect their project to you. The connected project will appear in your Projects tab.

Adding Members and Assigning Roles

Admins and Team Managers from your Labelbox team can add members to a project that has been shared with your organization. Adding members to a shared project can be done via the Members tab or inside the project under Settings > Members.


Admins have reduced access to projects shared with their organization. Notably, they cannot take destructive action against the project, they cannot export data, they cannot add or remove data, and they cannot adjust the quality settings of the project.

Team Manager

Team Managers are able to add and remove their organization's members to shared projects. However, the members of the client project will not be visible.

Labeler & Reviewer

Labelers and Reviewers of a shared project behave identically to the way they do in an internal project.
