in-task checklists

this doesn't apply to trivial notes like : 'Shot started', 'Good job!' or 'You're fired', ...

 

Notes are really useful because they contain the description of specific retakes: 'Evenly space edges on fingers', 'add loop in elbows', 'Setup Reference contains keys on eyes', ... Several retakes may also be grouped in one note.

This is why it would be useful to have a status on notes so that a resource/supervisor can see what retakes are done, are in progress or still need to be done. Filtering on those stati would be very helpful

 

Maybe you have a different idea on how to implement retakes (description and follow up throughout the versions). If you do, we'd like to know how

One thing is for sure the description and status of a specific retake (not just a version) must be clearly visible and easily queryable.

Forgetting a retake because it wasn't clearly visible (between all other notes) or queryable is not an option.

This is something we have on our roadmap. Not necessary implemented as statuses, but more like a checklist attached to a note. 

 

As you say, supervisors want to add things that the artist should do to make the note complete. So instead of having a status that you change, the supervisor can add a checklist when creating the note and any recipient of the note have the ability to check things of the list. When all items have been checked, the note is shown as completed.

 

Of course, notes with unfinished checklist items should be queryable from notes and in the inbox.

 

Exactly how this will work is not fully decided yet and any feedback on the matter is appreciated.

 

 

Cheers,

Carl

Right.

 

We see notes as subtasks for tasks.

The main difference may be that subtasks can't be planned in advance while tasks can.

 

Differentiating dones and todos in the subtasks(retakes) is very important. (artists don't like searching for retakes, it has to be 'in your face')

At CC we we work with color coding. Todo retakes are marked red, unformatted ones are done.

The method is very primitive but works fine. Even on a spreadsheet cluttered with retakes, the todo's are detected 'at a glance' !

This is one of the reasons I asked for rich text notes in another thread on this forum (as a workaround for notes with status).

 

The challenge is to streamline the whole thing.

We are doing a prototype of checklists now, should have some more feedback about this in the coming weeks. We will consider all feedback we get here in our forum. But our goal is that checklists should work both for a supervisor to add to notes/feedback as a way of creating subtasks that's need to be completed (checked), and for any user in ftrack as a personal checklist.

 

Don't hesitate to give us more feedback and feature request on how this should work.

 

Cheers,

Fredrik

About personal checklist, it could be presented to the user without loosing context. It would be great to navigate through tasks, shots, versions, projects, etc., while still showing the personal checklist somewhere on the screen, like something you can easily toggle on/off.

 

Anyway, having the checklist in the inbox, or in "My Tasks" pane somewhere, sounds it's going to get the job done.

Hello all,

 

It would be great to have a checklist tab (as illustrated in the attachment)

 

or

 

a note which can be pinned to the top that allows us to add a checklist.

 

This serves as a way for team members to further break down tasks, plan and report back progress.

 

It also allows for a more granular approach to task division and planning without creating numerous additional tasks.

 

The problem with just mentioning a list of things to do / correct / adjust in notes is that items can quickly get buried / separated or lost in a series of responses.

 

Thanks,

Jack

Hi Jack,

Agree, we're working on adding checklists/todo's, and your attached screenshot is very close to what we're working on right now.

 

We have a similar discussion in this topic : http://forum.ftrack.com/index.php?/topic/24-status-on-notes/ (I will merge this topic with that one)

 

Thanks,

Fredrik
