It is possible to configure pages on ftrack, such as Tasks or Versions on a project, and to set them up with filters and attributes. These are some of the most important pages in ftrack, and they are essential for project managers and creative supervisors. Configuring them ensures a workflow suited to your pipeline and company.
Fortunately, every individual user does not have to configure their own pages. You can configure the pages just once and then share them with your team.
For example, you could configure a view to show incomplete tasks only. Or, if you work in a pipeline fashion, you can create a view to display your objects with Task columns.
You can share your configured views with specific users, or with a group of users should you wish your wider team to make use of them.
Dashboards visualize information about your projects and company in a handy, easy-to-digest view. Dashboards come in two flavors, and both can be shared:
- Dashboards specific to a project. You can add various widgets to display diagrams, statistics, and insight into a project’s progress, such a burndown charts.
- Dashboards related to all projects and users in the workspace. You can find these dashboards in the Overview section. Overview provides the ability to see Tasks, Versions, and Timelines from all the projects and users.
When configuring dashboards and views in ftrack, we recommend that you include your workflow specialist. They should be the experts on the data they need to see.
