You can now group by attributes from any object in the Tasks Spreadsheet. This includes both standard attributes on Sequence and Shot, for example, as well as custom attributes.
Presenting, filtering and grouping project deliverables and tasks in the Spreadsheet is an important part of the daily process for many coordinators and producers. With this new feature, you’ll find grouping via the spreadsheet much more flexible.
You can now import data back into ftrack that was previously exported with the Id. An example use case would be exporting data from ftrack and processing it in an external spreadsheet application, then importing the updated information back into ftrack. It will match up based on the Id in ftrack.
The ftrack API uses a dynamic schema based on the configuration of the ftrack workspace. On the new API schema reference page, users can see all entities available on their workspace and explore their properties. The API schema reference is available from the help menu when clicking on ‘user’ in the top-right corner.
By using the API schema reference, it is far easier to obtain an overview of what attributes are available and how schemas work together.
We’ve introduced a new notes editor that allows the user to:
- Style text (bold, italic, strikethrough)
- Add lists
- Add labels
- @ mention team members
- Mark notes as completable
Thanks to this feature it is now easier to write and identify notes. Team members can receive notifications from a note through @ mentions and instructions are more clear to note recipients.
- Improved quick filters in the tasks spreadsheet
- Require a strong password
- New indications for Inbox and Jobs
- Export Forecast report to CSV
- Korean localization
You can now quickly search for any object in the Tasks Spreadsheet using a search box in the top-left corner of the ftrack Studio Tasks Spreadsheet. Previously, filtering only worked for tasks; now, it’s possible to search for shots, sequence, asset builds, and folders.
Search for multiple items simultaneously by entering a comma-separated list of items—e.g., “shot010, shot020” will show both shot010 and shot020. You can also export this information to a PDF, CSV or Excel.
You can now export the Forecast report to CSV.
The Forecast report predicts how much available time a project will have in future weeks. Exporting the Forecast report data to CSV enables users to process production information in other tools. E.g., users can take Forecast report data into Excel/Numbers or Google Sheets and create a graph that visualises numbers or compares the Forecast in ftrack with information from other systems.
ftrack Studio is now available in Korean! (This feature is also available in ftrack Review.)
ftrack Studio can now be used by Korean-speaking teams who don’t feel comfortable using the English UI. ftrack Studio presents no barriers between Korean-speaking users and understanding the software.
ftrack Studio can also be used in Russian, Chinese, Spanish, Japanese, and English.
