Kickoff a Crew for a List

Introduction

CrewAI provides the ability to kickoff a crew for each item in a list, allowing you to execute the crew for each item in the list. This feature is particularly useful when you need to perform the same set of tasks for multiple items.

Kicking Off a Crew for Each Item

To kickoff a crew for each item in a list, use the kickoff_for_each() method. This method executes the crew for each item in the list, allowing you to process multiple items efficiently.

Here's an example of how to kickoff a crew for each item in a list:

from crewai import Crew, Agent, Task

# Create an agent with code execution enabled
coding_agent = Agent(
    role="Python Data Analyst",
    goal="Analyze data and provide insights using Python",
    backstory="You are an experienced data analyst with strong Python skills.",
    allow_code_execution=True
)

# Create a task that requires code execution
data_analysis_task = Task(
    description="Analyze the given dataset and calculate the average age of participants. Ages: {ages}",
    agent=coding_agent
)

# Create a crew and add the task
analysis_crew = Crew(
    agents=[coding_agent],
    tasks=[data_analysis_task]
)

datasets = [
  { "ages": [25, 30, 35, 40, 45] },
  { "ages": [20, 25, 30, 35, 40] },
  { "ages": [30, 35, 40, 45, 50] }
]

# Execute the crew
result = analysis_crew.kickoff_for_each(inputs=datasets)
