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!
First post! hello! Right now when viewing the dependencies of an asset version, the pane shows both parents and children of the current asset version. This is very confusing and it would be spectacular if we could either separate those, or at a minimum be able to differentiate them. Also when viewing dependencies as a list, it would be awesome to be able to see them in a hierarchical / collapsible tree view. Thanks! zak
