Filtering Tasks by Most Recent Annotation Update in Label Studio


Is there an available method to filter tasks in Label Studio by the most recent updated_at timestamp for a task’s annotations? Currently, the “completed” filter seems to interpret the most recent created_at timestamp across all annotations.


To filter tasks by the latest annotation updates in Label Studio, you can employ the “Last updated by” column within the Data Manager. This column indicates the last changes made to any annotation within a task, reflecting the updated_at timestamp and the responsible individual. To filter by these updates, follow these steps:

  1. Go to your project’s Data Manager in Label Studio.
  2. Make sure the “Last updated by” column is active; adjust your column settings to display it if necessary.
  3. Use the sort functionality on this column to order the tasks by the update timestamps, facilitating the identification of the most recently updated tasks at the top.
