Macro Work Submission Page

This is the rough design idea of the page to submit works for macro tasks.

Macro Work v.s. Micro Work

What is the difference between macro and micro work? Although they are not fundamentally different, I would imagine,

  • Since macro tasks take longer time than micro tasks, the result document may be a lot longer, any may have complex format. It will be in binary format like PDF, or application specific files such as doc, ppt, xls, mp3 etc.
  • Requesters may or may not know how many files workers will create. For example, if the task is programming in Java, the number of source code and their names may vary.
  • Requesters may want to specify file name patterns in some cases.

Features for Macro Work Submission

  • Upload binary file(s)
  • Use the file names given by workers
  • Requester can specify file naming convention
  • Google Drive/Drop Box integration

Page Designs

The followings are the design ideas. It doesn't show all the features listed above.

Option 1: Add "file upload form" to the prototype page

Option 2: Create a new page to upload multiple files

Open Questions

1. Google Drive/Drop Box Integration

I believe the files should be uploaded to Google Drive/Drop Box thru Daemo. If we allow workers uploading files directly to Google Drive/Drop Box, we can't keep track the work submission.

2. How long should we keep the files

If we store uploaded files in our database, it will eat up the storage space. Should we ask requesters to download the files and remove them from our storage after a while?

END



Need more time to design...

The followings are just for my memo. I need to think more on these.

URL

Page URL: /work/
API URL:  /api/work/

Data Model

Work
    id             AutoField
    task           ForeignKey (id) -> Task
    comment        TextField
    file_count     IntegerField
    
  • The file count field is to keep the number of files originally uploaded. This may be useful because the files may be deleted or lost after we upload them to the destination site.
WorkFiles
    id        AutoField
    work      ForeignKey (id) -> Work
    link      TextField (or URLField)
