Hi There,

My Name is Stan, 26 years old, student, and I am trying to create an ExternalQuestion. I am pretty new to MTurk :)

I used the example code from the "External Question"-doc and I was expecting it to show me my website in an iframe:

Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ExternalQuestion xmlns="https://example.com">
  <ExternalURL>https://example.com/task01</ExternalURL>
  <FrameHeight>0</FrameHeight>
</ExternalQuestion>
I thought that this might show my website in an iframe and appends the parameters for worker-ID and so on. But when I'm trying to post this I get the error
Layout does not contain any fields for Workers to provide responses. Please include at least one field (input, select, or textarea).
.

What am I doing wrong? Sorry for the noob-question :)

Nevermind, got it... but it was way tougher than I thought :D

Now I have another problem: I created a few External Questions with Boto3, but I am not able to see or edit them, neither on the MTurk Requester Sandbox, nor on AWS. I can only see my tasks on the Worker Sandbox. How can I edit or remove existing tasks?

And how can I add a qualification-Test? The plan is to give the workers like 100 tasks, but they need to watch a short instruction video as a qualification-test. How Can I do this with Boto3?
