Hi, we are frequently missing a possibility so summarize shot attributes in the spreedsheet view. The "Functions" is only enabled for task attributes. But afaik, there is no possibility to summarize values from shot attributes. For example, we have a view and one column is "frame duration", a shot attribute. Now we need the sum of that value. Thanks Christian
Hi, Our team is wondering what type of expression we can use to filter the latest notes on the project. We would like a quick way to have the latest posts on the project on top.
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!
Hi, Is there a way to export an excel sheet from Ftrack that only contains a list of shots with their start and end dates? I can export an excel document with start and end dates per task, but when I do an export with the 'shots' view in the Ftrack spreadsheet, the start and end date columns are blank. Thanks, Natasha
