  1. Hello guys, After few months of using Ftrack, we gather few notes and feedbacks. It's not really a features request but mostly an open discussion to know what might already be in dev or a good idea to push further. My tasks - Upcoming Dates pannel (UI feedback) It would be nice if the name of the milestone is put forward. Currently, the whole hierarchy is written in the same font, same size. Milestones - (New feature?) It may be useful to be able to give a duration to a milestone. This would be convenient to symbolize the feedback time that the client has from the presentation. Bookmarks - (New feature?) To be able to change the name of the bookmarks. - (New feature?) Currently, it seems that bookmark only save the path to a specific location. It would be great that it also saves the view setup. We always struggle to switch between different views. Schedule - (New feature?) It would be useful to be able to save iterations of tasks gantt scheduling. It would allow to compare what was planned with reality. View - (Update?) It would be nice that when you save a view, it also saves the fact that your gannt is activate or not. Some views are setup in order to work well with the gannt panel. Review Session - (New feature?) It would be nice to be able to desactivate some tools like pen and arrow. Can sounds weird but sometimes you don't want to give your client the ability to draw on the stuff you submit. My Task - Schedule Pannel - (New feature?) It would be useful to have the option to see only Task or Event or both (exactly like in the Overview pannel). Let me know if you have questions, cheers,
  2. Hello Ftrack Community, - Let's say I have an Asset Build Folder for Character 1. - Inside it I have a task Modeling. - When I upload a new version of the task Modeling, I would like that the version's thumbnail replace the thumbnail of the task (Modeling) and the root folder (Character 1). Is there a way to allow Ftrack to do this automaticaly?
  3. Hello Ftrack, I wonder if we can set up some kind of IP restriction when a user want to log in ftrack. The idea is that only connections from the studio are allowed on our ftrack space. Best,
  4. Thank you Mattias for the answers! I have another question... It seems that I can't use inactive users when I work on planning my projects & ressources. They don't appear in "People" inside the Planning section. Am I right or did I made something wrong? Best,
  5. Another question... Okay, let's say I use the manual sort option to arrange my spreadsheet the way I want. Now I want to switch from Hierarchy view to Task view in order to get rid of all the folders/subfolders and have clean view of my schedule: --> It's a total mess, the Task view don't keep the way I sorted the tasks. Is it normal or did I miss something? Best,
  6. Hello Mattias, Thank you for your quick answers! Yes, that what I started to do. But If I move the items manually, can I be sure that the other users will see the spreadsheet the same way I organized it?
  7. Hello ftrack community, I am actually reviewing the product for an animation studio. I have few beginner questions, maybe you can help me? Sorting items in the spreadsheet I don't really understand how the product work to sort items (folders, tasks, etc.) in the spreadsheet. We like to keep things in a precise logical order, which is also very convenient for us in order to use the gantt tool properly. The best "method" I found here is to give a number to each item. But, it seems that ftrack always take into account the type of the asset first and then the name... Resulting in this kind of weird hierarchy: attachement ftrack-sort-type.jpg As you can see task 12-Storyboard Retake is above task 10- Storyboard. If i switch the type of task 12 (Task Review) to match the one of task 10 (Task Design): the item task 12 moves to the righ place. Am I doing something wrong here? Or did I miss an option that can fix this? Gantt scheduling For now, we use Gantter, which is a free gantt tool for Google Drive. It's very simple but it has all the options you can expect to make a smart schedule. Few things I really miss in ftrack are: 1. The various dependencies options and task constraints. 2. When you make a change to a task (move it, change his length, etc.) all the linked items to this task are updated. It's maybe more a feature request but do you plan to make this kind of updates to the ftrack gantt tool in the future? New Object that can have a duration When we plan a project, we like to have on the schedule the different dates of review with the client. But, instead of using a milestone point, we rather have an item with a duration in time (basically like a generic task). This is because a client can take 2, 5 or 10 days to answer and it's very important for us to integrate this fact in our schedules. In order to do that in ftrack, I created a new type of Object (like Folder, Shot, Task, etc.) in the system settings named Review. But when I add this new object in my spreadsheet, I can't give him a duration on the schedule. I didn't find a way to fix this, maybe you can help me? Slack Integration The studio use Slack as messenger tool. I wonder If you have planned to create integrations with it? For exemple, to replace email notifications? That's all! Don't hesitate If you have any questions or feedbacks on the way I try to use ftrack. Thank you!
