  1. Ah, ok. Bummer. Yes, please add this feature. Accessing shots is just as important as the individual shot tasks. What I do now is have various filter views that house certain status types so I can see a total for each category. I was just looking to have that data right there in the column for fast reference. Switching views is just too time consuming when all I just need is a quick count of my WIPs or Have Notes shots, etc... very similar to the Dashboard view, but up front so I don't have to switch the view. Also related, could you also consider pushing the number column down by one or at the very least starting the numbers at 0? When I look at any list and view the last item to see how many are listed, I always have to mentally remember to subtract 1 from it. I get that it's spreadsheet logic, and it's not the end of the world, but it is very annoying. Thanks.
  2. I am wanting Shot count and not Task count.
  3. I need some help with expressions, they honestly have confused me a bit. I've been trying to input an expression on the Shot Status column and have not gotten it figured out. The help doesn't fully explain them to an understandable point for my brain. I'm not programming inept either, I code in Javascript all the time. The syntax is what's throwing me here. Ideally I would like to have a shot count of certain status's at the top of the column, something like... "WIP: 25 / Notes: 10 / Waiting: 14" I tried something like this earlier and was getting 1 and "Passed" for the expression syntax, but not what I am wanting in results. I wrote... WIP: {func.count(func.IF(self.name, "", "WIP Ready To Send"))}It returns "WIP: 1". I'm sure I need a loop or something in there to iterate through all items, but again, confused on the syntax. Any help appreciated, thanks. My brain is use to this setup... var ary = 0;for(var i=0; i<itemsLen; i++){ if(items[i].name == "WIP Ready To Send"){ ary++; }}return ary;
  4. I just finished adding client notes one by one for 85 shots a few minutes ago. Not fun. A lot of which had the same note too. I haven't seen a way yet to do multiple Robinson, perhaps through Python, but I have not looked into it yet.
  5. So I have been outputting PDF docs of various data over the last few weeks for reviews and I am finding little quirks that are a bit annoying. Maybe this is different in fTrack v3, but I do not know. In some cases the data seen in the viewer is not what necessarily prints in the PDF. Like when viewing a List and then showing the List in "Shot/Asset Build" view, you see shots, with associated Tasks when you expand each shot. When exporting a PDF, you do not get the Tasks listed out as expected. I finally found a way for it to work and it is only when I view "All" for the project and not a List, but when I have data like this: (pardon the blurred spots, project is still not public yet) Nice and clean visually. Sequence, Shot, Tasks. No hierarchy naming like "ProjectName/Sequence/Shot/Task" for every item. When I export a PDF for this though I will get this: I find the extra bits of name data visual distracting and makes for a hard quick reading. Ideally it would be simple just like the actual source view in the first photo. So for example a shot name currently shows as... "PROJECT NAME" / 010 (cameron) / 001 ...would simply read as... 001 ...and so forth for the others. Sequences and Tasks. "PROJECT NAME" / 010 (cameron) / 001 / Remove wires ...should be... - Remove wires The key name is already mentioned and it's not like it's miles away from the rest of the data to not easily find it. Here's a mockup: Just my two cents. Thanks.
  6. Random error I have recieved the last two day upon loading a project. The full error... If I close it out and continue on, things seem to be fine. I got once yesterday while updating status on a few shots, and just a moment ago when I loaded my custom filter and all of the shots that loaded but one had their thumbnails showing. I reloaded the view in app and they loaded up just fine. Temp internet glitch maybe? It doesn't seem to be hurting anything at the moment, but thought I would mention it.
  7. Got a request (assuming this does not exist as I have not found a way to do it yet) for the "Custom Filter" option in the main project view. I would love to be able to share custom filters with other supervisors on the same project. I've got a project with 160+ shots and I've sorted a few shots and tasks by custom filters to trim down the information needed to be seen at a given moment. For my other users I need to recreate the filter on their login manually. It would be nice if the filter could be global to a project and accessible via the Custom Filter list or at the very least able to be exported and loaded in via a file.
  8. I am currently looking for a solution to this myself right now. I've got over 150 thumbnails to process. I would love to be able to do this on import if possible.
  9. DOH! Yup, I need more sleep. Thanks for pointing that out.
  10. Apologies, I apparently was confusing the main project graphic for the export logo. I just came across the option in the settings for the export logo path entry, of which was a local file as you mentioned. I removed that path and the PDF now exports just fine. Disregard my shot thumbnail question. I just got that answer a moment ago too. Thanks for the help.
  11. Nothing vital to anyone's workflow or anything, just a cosmetic annoyance. On the Status not done (advanced) widget I am noticing that the overlay covers the task type names if the remaining tasks are near or at 0.
  12. I can't seem to find a way to expand the height of a row in the spreadsheet view. Right now I have the option for three Notes to be listed, but the cell height only allows for two to be seen.
  13. No problem. As TD, I'm trying to get our post house up to speed and familiar with ftrack. It is already showing great value for two features we are juggling. I'm sure I'll share more quirks as I come across them. It's always nice to have a helpful tool to ease the stress of working post.
  14. Ok, I will look into that. So then would that also be an issue with the shot thumbnails? Those are all local files that were drug into the ftrack UI as well. Having to keep all of our images online separately from it's related ftrack data is not really ideal for me. Having things in a central location makes life easier. This may be more of a feature request I guess then. Thanks.
