  1. Hi there!

    I've noticed that via the api, you can create a subtask - a Task who's parent is another Task - but there's no way to do this through the UI. Is this something that will be added to the UI in the future (or am I missing it..)? Or this actually shouldn't be able to be done through the api?


  2. Hiya!

    Currently adding a Task Column attribute to the Tasks tab only shows data on shot rows vs task rows.

    Example: on the Tasks tab, adding a Task Column for Composite type's status will only show data when viewing Hierarchy or Shots in shot rows. But it doesn't show anything for task rows or when viewing just Tasks. It'd be awesome if the task row had the task's parent shot's Composite task status.

    The end goal for us is to be able to be viewing Tasks, group by assignee, and view the parent shot's other task statuses via Task Columns in the same row.

  3. Currently when you're on the Tasks page within a project, you can adjust the bid of tasks, but not milestones. Milestones require clicking in to the milestone and adjusting bid via the side panel.

    It'd be helpful to be able to adjust milestones' bids on the Tasks page so our coords can batch adjust multiple milestones at a time, as they do with tasks.

  4. When on the Tasks pane, if you make a change to a Task's name/status/etc, and then click to navigate to a new pane (click the Versions pane, click another shot, etc) there is a popup warning for "Unsaved changes" and whether to Discard or Save and continue.

    If you're on the Versions pane, making a change and clicking to navigate away doesn't prompt the user with the warning, so they are unaware their changes weren't saved.

    Would be awesome to have the same warning behavior for Versions! :)

  5. Hi there!

    We'd like the ability to add a label or name to a Query filter added to a dashboard or view. Or alternatively, if there was the ability to add a comment to the query text block like this:

    # this filters ABC shots
    name like "ABC%"


    Use case - we have coords that share dashboards/views company wide. When there are multiple Query filters on a view, they want the user to be able to toggle the filters for their own usage. But it can be hard to distinguish what each query is doing if they are involved. Adding a label/name above the query text block - so instead of just "Query" it could say "Query - ABC shots" - would help distinguish for the end user. The ability to add a comment would also serve the purpose.

  6. Hey there! I'm hoping to get an example/explanation of this Tip on https://help.ftrack.com/developing-with-ftrack/key-concepts/actions


    To group actions together, give them the same label and specify a unique variant per action.

    I input the same label and set the "variant" attribute on 2 of my actions to different strings, but there are still 2 icons appearing, labeled with the same name. What is the actual outcome of this when done correctly? Is there an example you can provide so I can troubleshoot what I'm doing wrong?


  7. Currently the timesheet/time logger views allow you to select a Milestone in the Tasks drop-down if you are assigned to it. Given Milestones don't have "Log time" or "Show logged time" in their More menu, it seems as though this is a bug. If it's not, it would be useful to be able to designate what entities a user may log time to -- Task, Milestone, Shot, etc -- to have more control of timelogs.

  8. Hi there,

    We're trying to troubleshoot failing Excel, CSV, PDF exports. When exporting a small amount of data, it will add the job to the Jobs list and says Running for about 2 minutes before switching to Failed. I see you can access the Job through the api and see the submission info and status name, but no additional information. We've looked through the logs on our internal ftrack server but can't seem to find any errors to help trace the source of the problem. Do you have any advice as far as where to look or what could be causing the failures?
