  1. Hello, I am trying to understand what the criteria is for sorting tasks from a CSV import. I have tried several combinations starting each task object with numbers 1-14 ( example attached ), as well as A-7. The map data screen shows the task order correctly ( attached ), but the Import Summary view re-arranges the tasks into a seemingly random order regardless of the task object prefix. Can someone please explain how ftrack sorts CSV task object types?
  2. Hey ftrackers, we recently tried to add notes to a task in a sorted order. We read a number of question from a json which looks like this: [ { "index": 1, "content": "Q1" }, { "index": 2, "content": "Q2" }, { "index": 3, "content": "Q3" }, { "index": 4, "content": "Q4" } ] ..and we would like these questions, to appear in the order given by index. But for some reason, we always get the order visible in attachment: ftrack_question_ordering.PNG Could this be the same problem we have with custom attributes being not sorted? Thanks in advance Tim EDIT: The note, which was altered latest is shown upmost automatically, which implies, that we cannot change the order, right?
  3. Hello! Is there a way to sort projects in the "Projects" drop-down tab other than by "Name" or by "Date", like by custom project attributes? We would essentially like to find ways to look at our projects in that view in groups, Animation, Video, and Stills. Is there any way to do this? I've searched for a while and can't find anything.

  4. 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!
  5. Hi all, Hey this is my first post to the forum. Thank you for your support When I copy and paste a folder of tasks and milestones the ordering is rearranged in the copied folder. I would expect that the order of tasks would remain the same. I am using Manual Sort feature. Cheers Eric
