  1. Hello, i was wondering what assigning a user group to a object actually does? I don't see any connect functionality. Documentation only says it's possible but not what it does: ftrack documentation Btw. Our Producer all thought that this would assign all the task inside the object to all the users in the group or make the task available to them and they can select task from the object themselves and i actually think that's a good idea?! Regards Dennis
  2. I use the notes function on 'tasks' ALL the time, to give feedback on shots, but they are usually extensive (so maybe 5 notes rather than 1). I want them spaced out on separate lines to make them easier to digest. I find it frustrating already that just pressing 'return' to start a new line doesn't translate and will mean when viewing the note the text is just a solid block. So I have been using bullet points (list items) anytime I want to start a new line. This is largely fine but sometimes I don't want the note to be a list item. but also, the bullet points don't always work, sometimes they view as bullet points, sometimes it just displays it as a block of text with hyphens thrown in there. I've tried experimenting with things that might be causing this but cannot find a pattern. is there something that I'm missing or doing wrong? Why is the way the text displays so inconsistent?
  3. Hello, i was wondering if there is an easy way to move the media versions from one task to another, without the need to download it and upload it again in the correct task folder.
  4. Hi, I'm searching a way to update Task status when launching a particular action. (the Action launches After Effects, and I want the task's status to be updated from Not Started to In Progress) I tried : task.setStatus("In Progress") >>>> AttributeError: 'Task' object has no attribute 'setStatus' I tried : task['status']['name'] = "In Progress" => it changes the name of the status in the UI. And I have to go to the system settings / statuses to revert this. I understand I change the display name of the status object itself, and not the status / state of the task. I tried : status = session.query('Status').all() my_task['status'] = status[8] session.commit() I wanted to set the status attribute with a Status Object, but... >>>> ftrack_api.exception.ServerError: Server reported error: PermissionError(Permission denied: not allowed to 'update' 'StatusType'. Operation 'update' can never be done on 'StatusType'.) I'm sure (actually I hope...) I'm missing something trivial... Any help appreciated ^^ Thanks.
  5. I'm writing an action script that get as input all tasks whose parent(Asset Build) have a specific value in a custom attribute. Ideally, the right value of the custom attribute would be found in the Filter button/option from the site. The first problem is that i want to be able to query all tasks that have the right filter value using the API's expression language. Something like this: filtered_value = ??? #somehow get the filter from the site list_of_tasks = session.query('Task where parent.custom_attributes.my_custom_attr is {0}'.format(filtered_value)).all() The second problem is that the custom attribute is actually a list so in the query expression i need to be able to do something like this: list_of_filtered_values = ??? #somehow get the filters from the site for value in list_of_filtered_values: #get all tasks that have the value in the custom attribute list. list_of_tasks = session.query('Task where {0} in parent.custom_attributes.my_custom_attr'.format(value)).all() #Do stuff As of right now i'm having to query all task from the project and check which ones have the right value(i get the value from the task where the action was triggered) and then apply my action with it. It's a very inefficient approach since the project has lots of tasks(and it will have more in the future) and Python is not very fast at looping around huge lists. My code right now looks like this: right_value = entity.get("my_custom_attr") tasks = session.query('Task where parent.object_type.name is "Asset Build" and project.name is "my_project"').all() for task in tasks: if episode not in task["parent"]["custom_attributes"]['my_custom_attr']: continue else: #do_stuff Is there a better solution? Thanks!
  6. If the task type is the default one, the name of the task is always taskname. By creating the new task (If the task is the default one) the name is not automatically changing like the other tasks. It is showing up as "taskname".
  7. Hi I'm wondering how to create the tasks from a task template, through the API. I can't figure out how to access them. I was following the following doc: http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/stable/example/project.html but it doesn't show how to create from task template. The task template would appear to be a child of the schema if the interface is anything to go by, but there doesn't seem to be anything in the items of the schema object, or a dedicated function. I did see there was a "_task_workflow" is that what I want, I presume not as its marked as private. Also according to the API, http://ftrack-python-api.rtd.ftrack.com/en/stable/api_reference/entity/project_schema.html the "get_types" only require one arg called schema, its not clear whats wanted here. As the object its self is supposed to represent the schema. Looking at your example code though you have passed a string called "Task". How do I know what options I can pass here? thanks Phil
  8. Hello Ftrack Community, - Let's say I have an Asset Build Folder for Character 1. - Inside it I have a task Modeling. - When I upload a new version of the task Modeling, I would like that the version's thumbnail replace the thumbnail of the task (Modeling) and the root folder (Character 1). Is there a way to allow Ftrack to do this automaticaly?
  9. We would like to extend the selected task darkened bar to the Schedule Gant View. This would allow us to more easily see the selected task in complex Gant views.
  10. We would like to have the ability to turn snapping on and off in the Schedule Gant view when moving or creating a task. We would like to snap to the end ,or beginning of a task and we would like to snap to a user defined time segment like day, half-day, hour, beginning of week. This would help set up complex sets of tasks. Cheers Eric
  11. We would like to request the ability to double click, or right a click task in the Schedule Gant to enter task time manually. Currently you have to try and pull the handle and it is difficult to get exactly the amount of time you want.
  12. 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
  13. Hi, I am trying to add a new task status called To be perfected, for tasks that, you've guessed it, could be perfected at the end of a project if we do have remaining time. I have created the status and ordered it correctly (see first attached image). I then added it to one of our schema, and it seems to be OK (see second attached image). But on one of the other schema, I can get this status to be at its supposed place. It always comes after the Completed status, (see third attached image). I have tried to remove those two status, then add them anew in the order I want them do display, but I can't get them right. Furthermore, when I change the status of a task of a project corresponding to the schema which seems to be OK, the status are indeed ordered the wrong way (see fourth attached image). And by the way, when adding status to a schema, they are always misplaced at first: it is necessary to save the tasks part of a schema and then open it again to see status behaving as they should. Should a report an issue on this?
