New features

in this cycle, we added


  • Entropy Value
  • Approve and Disapprove by customer and admin

Entropy Value

The entropy value integration will allow the user to select the most relevant images for their particular task. The system allows you to upload a CSV file with image names and entropy values, after which they are assigned to the images within the images space on the platform. This allows you to sort them later and determine the most suitable images for your annotation task.

Approve and Disapprove by customer and admin

Within the editor space, the users on Admin and Customer levels are able to approve and disapprove every image. Later the annotators and the QA`s will be able to see the status of the image in the accordingly editor space. This allows having ann extra quality assurance level and allows the project managers or the customers to establish the ground truth annotation standard easily.

Team Creator, Team Admin, and Project Admin restrictions

Within the internal user hierarchy of SuperAnnotate, in accordance with the recent improvements, the team creator is the highest administrative level. The higher the clearance of the admin, the more permissions they have concerning user roll changes, assigning and deleting other team admins, image uploads, and other administrative features. The Team creator can add other users, as well as assign other admins to the team. The team admin can not change or delete the team creator. The team admin, as well as the team creator, can decide the project admin permissions.
